Parent Concerns and Chain of Command
When a parent has a concern about his/her child, the school personnel who has the most knowledge about the concern will need to be addressed first. In most cases, the parent will need to consult with the teacher. If the concern is not resolved, the parent may then take the concern to the assistant principal assigned to their child’s classroom. The principal becomes involved when the two prior levels of assistance have not resolved the situation.
While parents have the right to report concerns directly to district personnel, the majority of cases will be returned for the principal’s response/action which is to begin the process described above and with the person who has most knowledge of the situation first.
