APPEAL BYLAW #501

The role of the PAC is also to advise parents on how to present their individual concerns to the school and to ensure that an appropriate procedure is in place so that these concerns are heard at the school or if required, at the district level. For your information the following process should be used.
 
APPEAL BYLAW #501
Parents and guardians of a student who is entitled to an educational program in SD#23 may appeal the decision of an employee of the school board which significantly affects the education, health or safety of a student. The following steps should be followed:
  1. Parent will meet with employee (e.g. teacher) to solve the problem.
  2. Parent will meet with the employee’s supervisor (e.g. principal) to solve the problem.
  3. Parent will meet with the superintendent or designate (e.g. director)  to solve the problem.
If at this point, the issue remains unsolved and the parent is not satisfied, the parent has the right to a final appeal to the Board. Details of this process are available at the school.
 
This district policy is in place to help ensure that effective communication is part of the problem solving process and that parents and schools work as partners in providing quality education to their students.
