Board of Education

Eastern Local Board of Education


The Board of Education recognizes the value to school governance of public comment on educational issues and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on school matters of community interest.

The Board believes that complaints and grievances are best handled and resolved as close to their origin as possible. The staff should be given the opportunity to consider the issues and attempt to resolve the problems
prior to involvement by the Board.

The proper channeling of complaints involving instruction, discipline or learning materials are as follows:

1. Employee
2. Principal or building administrator
3. District administrator
4. Superintendent
5. Board of Education
