NON-DISCRIMINATION UNIFORM COMPLAINT PROCEDURES

The District is committed to equal opportunity for all individuals in education.  District programs and activities shall be free from discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, race, ancestry, color, religion, national origin, ethnic group identification, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability or any other unlawful consideration.  The District promotes programs which ensure that discriminatory practices are eliminated in all District activities.  The Governing Board recognizes that the District has primary responsibility for insuring that it complies with state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs.

 

The District follows uniform complaint procedures when addressing complaints alleging unlawful discrimination or failure to comply with state or federal law in adult basic education, consolidated categorical aid programs, vocational education, child nutrition programs and special education programs. Any complaint must be initiated no later than six months from the date when the alleged discrimination occurred or when the complainant first obtained knowledge of the facts of the alleged discrimination.  The District investigates and seeks to resolve complaints at the local level.  If the complaint cannot be resolved at the school level, the following compliance officer and Title IX Coordinator has been designated to receive and investigate complaints to ensure District compliance with law:

Keith Rogenski, Assistant Superintendent

San Ramon Valley Unified School District

699 Old Orchard Drive

Danville, CA  94526

ph:  (925) 552-2923 fax:  (925) 552-5092

The District prohibits retaliation in any form for the filing of a complaint, the reporting of instances of discrimination, or for participation in the complaint procedures.  Discrimination complaints shall be investigated in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the parties and the facts.  Within sixty (60) days from receipt of a complaint, the District will complete a mediation/investigation and prepare a written decision.  Any complainant may appeal a District decision to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction within fifteen (15) days of receiving the District decision. The District Uniform Complaint Procedure is governed by Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 1312.3.  A copy of this policy and regulation may be obtained from the school principal or the above named compliance officer.  Nothing in District procedures precludes a complainant from pursuing available civil law remedies, such as mediation centers, public-private interest groups and/or attorneys, etc. For discrimination complaints, however, a complainant must wait until sixty (60) days from the filing of an appeal with the California Department of Education before pursuing civil law remedies.
