Citizen complaints


Problem solving options

Do you need help working through a concern about district procedures or with personnel? The best place to start is with the person or persons closest to the problem, if at all possible. When the concern or problem arises at a school, your principal should be your next point of contact to seek a solution. However, if a solution can't be worked out at the school, you have other options:

ASD Citizen Complaint Process

Citizen Complaint form

You  may use this process to address complaints against any ASD employee, policy, practice or procedure, including rights protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972.

 

If your complaint concerns instructional materials, please don't use the Citizen Complaint form. For complaints about instructional materials, use the Request form for Additions to or Re-evaluation of Instructional Materials form.
