    2.  Address the Board at the appropriate time when called upon by the Board President.

    Charges/Complaints
    Personal charges or complaints against individual District employees may not be presented orally at the public Board meeting.  This prohibition is necessary in order to protect the due process rights of employees.


    Problem Resolution
    Problems and concerns must be first addressed at the school, department, or facility level.  If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved at this first level, the concern should be directed to the appropriate District-level administrator or supervisor.  If further action is necessary, a problem or concern may be referred to the Superintendent.

    The Governing Board will not entertain or consider any recommendation, grievance, complaint, or petition from parents, students, employees or patrons of the District until such issues have first been pursued through the proper administrative channels without satisfactory resolution.  This requirement helps ensure the Governing Board is fully informed and able to act unprejudically when acting in the role of a hearing body.
