RAINIER PREP COMPLAINT POLICY
Rainier Prep believes that if a citizen has a question, suggestion, or complaint, the citizen should first discuss this directly with the person involved as most complaints can be resolved informally. If the issue is not resolved, the citizen should bring it up with the appropriate administrator who shall attempt to resolve the issue through a conference with the citizen and the staff member. If the issue cannot be resolved in the manner described above, the citizen should complete the Request for Consideration of Complaint Form (available in the school office). The school administrator or designee shall verbally explain the complaint process at the time the “Request for Consideration of Complaint Form” is given to the citizen and inform the citizen of the right to have an advocate assist in representing the citizen’s position. The complaint shall:
1. Be in writing;
2. Be signed by the complaining parties, and
3. Set forth specific acts, conditions or circumstances of concern.
The School Leader/designee will conduct or coordinate an investigation of the complaint and reach a decision within twenty (20) school work days after receipt of the complaint. The decision of the School Leader/designee shall be communicated in writing to the parties involved. Should a complaint be submitted with less than twenty (20) school work days remaining within the regularly scheduled school calendar, reasonable extension of this timeline shall be allotted as deemed necessary by the investigator.If the complaint is not resolved to the citizen’s satisfaction, the citizen may request, within five (5) school work days, the complaint be referred to the Director of the Board. The School Leader/designee shall refer the matter within five (5) school work days. The parties involved in the complaint will have the opportunity to meet with the Director of the Board/designee within twenty (20) school work days after the Director of the Board or designee receives the Request for Consideration of Complaint Form. Such a request to meet with the Director of the Board or designee shall be made by the citizen within five (5) school work days
from the time the citizen requested the referral. Such a request from the staff member shall be made within five (5) school work days from the time the staff member was notified of the complaint. The Director of the Board or designee shall also have the right to establish a review committee if desired, or directly make a decision. In cases of physical injury to a student, the complaint will be referred to a review committee established by the Director of the Board. When a review committee is established, the committee shall be representative of the interests involved. The Director of the Board or designee will appoint the committee chairperson within ten (10) school work days after receiving the Request for Consideration of Complaint Form. The committee will review the citizen’s complaint and submit a written recommendation to the Director of the Board within twenty (20) school work days after the committee chairperson has been appointed. The Director of the Board will make a decision and notify the citizen, in writing, within ten (10) school work days after:
1. Receiving the Form and the School Leader/designee’s decision; or
2. Meeting with the parties involved in the complaint; or
3. Receiving the written recommendation of the review committee.
The response of the Director of the Board shall clearly state either:
1) That the school district denies the allegations contained in the complaint; or
2) The nature of such reasonable corrective measures deemed necessary to eliminate any
such act, condition or circumstance within the school district; PROVIDED that any such
corrective measure deemed necessary shall be instituted as expeditiously as possible but
in no event later than 30 calendar days following the date of the Director of the Board’s
response to the complaining party.
