Complaint Resolution Process
Broken Arrow Public Schools strives to maintain a cooperative relationship between parents, teachers, staff and administration. Occasionally, misunderstandings occur and resolutions need to be made. Often, concerned parties will contact media outlets looking for help resolving the matter; but concerns are best resolved on the level at which they occur. By following these steps situations can usually be resolved in a quick and fair matter. Below is the process parents or guardians should take to resolve a situation.
1. CONTACT THE APPROPRIATE STAFF MEMBER
The most direct route to resolving a concern is to speak directly with the person involved, whether it is a teacher, a coach, a bus driver, etc. More than 95 percent of concerns are resolved through communication with those involved.
2. CONTACT THE BUILDING PRINCIPAL
The principal is in charge of each campus and is responsible for the school’s operation. Explanations of policies and procedures, various clarifications and all types of campus information are available in the principal’s office.
