Williams Complaint Procedures

K-12 Williams Complaint Form - Revised July 2022

Under state law, students, parents and staff can submit complaints concerning deficiencies related to instructional materials, conditions of facilities that are not maintained in a clean or safe manner or in good repair, and teacher vacancy or mis-assignment. These are called "Williams Complaints." The complaint and response are public documents as provided by statute. The Williams Complaint form may be filed anonymously. However, if you wish to receive a response to your complaint, you must provide contact information.

All Williams Complaints should be filed with the principal at the school site to which the complaint pertains.

Preschool complaints are addressed through the District's Uniform Complaint Procedures.
