tiggermcmanus… so much more thorough and better stated than I.
Ditto on a lot of this.
It has been a while since I worked in a big district.
90% of complaints of this nature, the District Office folks don’t know what is going on at the site level.
A simple forwarded email with your concerns to let them know that this is going on will usually resolve the matter.
The site gets a call telling them to knock it off, followed by a more professional email with the discussion and link to the policy, procedure, etc.
Adding formal complaints, the school board, state department, etc. only slows things down and adds unnecessary steps.
I always go, site leader – district leader – formal…
Most times when you go formal, they want to know what you did prior to resolve the matter.
