COMPLAINT RIGHTS

Parents/Guardians:

Education Code 35186 requires that the following notice be posted in your child’s classroom:

1. There should be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials. For there to be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials, each student, including English learners, must have a textbook or instructional material, or both, to use in class and to take home to complete required homework assignments.

2. School facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.

3. There should be no teacher vacancies or misassignments. “Misassignment” means the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position for which the employee does not hold a legally recognized certificate or credential, or placement in a teaching or services position for which the employee is not otherwise authorized by statute to hold.

“Teacher Vacancy” means a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of the year for an entire year or, if the position is for a one-semester course, a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of a semester for an entire semester.

4. To file a complaint regarding the above matters, complaint forms can be obtained at the principal’s office, district office, or can be downloaded from the school district’s or California Department of Education’s website.: http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/cp/uc. However, a complaint need not be filed using either the district’s complaint form or the form from the California Department of Education.
