Uniform Complaint Procedure
It is our policy to not discriminate against anyone based on ethnicity, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color, actual or perceived sex, sexual orientation, gender, age, mental or physical disability. If you feel that any employee of the Jefferson Union High School District has discriminated against you for any reason related to your personal characteristics or identification with a particular group, you may file a complaint. You may also file a complaint if you think that any state or federal law or regulation has been broken. If you file a complaint, your identity will be confidential and you will be protected from repercussions. The Jefferson Union High School District will investigate all complaints and make every attempt to resolve them quickly at the local level. The Jefferson Union High School District Board of Trustees recognizes its responsibility for ensuring compliance with state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. Therefore, the Board of Trustees has adopted a uniform complaint procedure to follow when addressing issues of alleged unlawful discrimination or failure to comply with laws. A complaint form may be obtained at the school district office. The complaint must be presented to the Associate Superintendent-Education within six months from the date of the alleged discrimination. If you need help because of language, literacy or disability, district staff may help file the complaint. You may appeal in writing to the California Department of Education within 15 days of receiving the district’s decision if you are no satisfied. Private attorneys or legal aide agencies may pursue remedies, and such actions could result in civil court agreements. For more information, contact the Associate Superintendent-Education at (650) 550-7948.
