It is the policy of the Board to ensure that any constituent complaint related to operational matters be first directed in writing to appropriate school staff (classroom teacher, support staff, Executive Director, etc.) and that staff have the opportunity to respond. If that process has been exhausted and the matter remains unsettled or is considered unsatisfactory, the complaint may be directed in writing to the Board at the following address: GMA.email@example.com. Complaints with regard to a student’s IEP must be referred to the Special Education Coordinator, Peg Rideout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
