Complaint Procedures

The Nevada City School District takes all concerns and complaints seriously. The District values the concerns of our parents, staff, students and community. Complaints are respected and honored; there are no negative consequences for filing a complaint.  No reprisals or retaliation shall be invoked against any student, parent or employee for processing, in good faith, a complaint, either on an informal or formal basis, or for participating in any way in these complaint procedures.  Every attempt is made to resolve complaints informally and at the lowest level possible. In the instances when that is not possible, a formal process is in place.

Concerns raised by parents/guardians about school district personnel should be resolved as quickly as possible. Therefore, parents or guardians of students in the NCSD are urged to discuss their concerns directly with the employee(s) in question when concerns surface.
