Process for filing a complaint:

The intent of the complaint procedure is to resolve complaints alleging a violation of applicable state and federal laws governing education programs which require a formal process, as specified in Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations, including allegations of unlawful discrimination. The District is committed to compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.

Definition of Complainant
Any individual, including a person's duly authorized representative or interested third party, public agency or organization, may be a complainant and may file a uniform complaint with the District. 

Discrimination Complaints
Complainants are protected from retaliation and the identity of the complainant alleging discrimination shall remain confidential, as appropriate. 

The District’s Board of Trustees acknowledges and respects student and employee rights to privacy. Discrimination complaints shall be investigated in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the parties when appropriate and as long as the integrity of the complaint process is maintained. This includes keeping the identity of the complainant confidential except to the extent necessary to carry out the investigation or proceedings, as determined, on a case-by-case basis, by the District.
