Complaint Procedure for Federal Programs
Any individual, organization or agency (“complainant”) may file a complaint with the Jackson County Board of Education if that individual, organization or agency believes and alleges that a local educational agency (“LEA”), the state educational agency (“SEA”), or an agency or consortium of agencies is violating a Federal statute or regulation that applies to a program under the ESEA Act. The complaint must allege a violation that occurred not more than one (1) year prior to the date that the complaint is received unless a longer period is reasonable because the violation is considered systemic or ongoing. A copy of the Complaints Procedures under the Every Child Succeeds Act is available in the school office, central office, and from the district webpage.
