Student/Parent/Legal Guardian Appeals - matters affecting students

An appeal is a formal written request for reconsideration of an action affecting a student which is imposed by a teacher or administrator.

A student or the, parent/legal guardian of a minor student has the right to initiate an appeal in accordance with applicable law or regulation. Where no law, policy or regulation specifically grants the right to an appeal of a certain action affecting a student by a teacher or an administrator, the Superintendent or designee will have sole discretion as to whether an appeal will be considered. The School Board will only consider an appeal of an action affecting a student when law, policy or regulation specifically requires that the School Board do so.

The Superintendent or designee shall develop regulations and administrative procedures to be used by a person making an appeal.
