Uniform Complaint Procedure

If you believe that your child is being discriminated against and/or harassed and your child is of protective class status under Title IX, Title VI, and ADA, you have the right to file a Uniform Complaint with the District Office on behalf of your child.

Please go to:  Williams for more information.

While you have the absolute right to file a Uniform Complaint immediately, Nesbit School asks you to also do the following as soon as you believe your child is being harassed or discriminated.  This request is made not only of parents of children in protective classes as well as children who are not in protective classes.

1.  Alert the principal to your concerns.  You can do so by either email, a phone call or by requesting a conference.  You can trust that your principal will want to help end your child's discrimination or harassment as soon as possible.

2.  Upon hearing your concerns, your principal will investigate and gather more information.

3.  Based upon the investigation, interventions and consequences will be enforced.
