Complaints & Concerns
For more information and clarification on complaints and concerns, refer to Crandall ISD Board Policy FNG — Student Rights and Responsibilities: Student and Parent Complaints/Grievances.
STEP ONE: Contact Appropriate School Staff Member
The most direct route to resolving a concern or issues is for parents/guardians to first conference directly with the involved party (teacher, coach, etc.).
More than 95% of concerns are resolved through a conversation between those involved.
STEP TWO: Contact Campus Administrators
Campus administrators are responsible for the school’s operations.
Clarification of school policies and procedures can be explained.
If necessary, conferences with involved parties can be arranged and a suitable solution can be reached.
STEP THREE: Contact Administration Services Office
If steps one and two have not resolved your concern, Maresa Bailey, Executive Director of School Leadership, should be contacted at 972-427-6000
The District Administration Services Office will refer each complaint to the campus if the appropriate staff member and campus administrator have not been contacted.
A formal meeting with all involved parties can be arranged in an effort to reach a resolution. RESOLUTION: Communication
A resolution will be communicated via telephone conference, email, or meeting.
Results of the meeting will be emailed to all parties.
