ABS Grievance Policy
Each Board Meeting is open and accessible to parents and community members. The first fifteen minutes of the meetings provide an opportunity for parents to bring forward any concerns or complaints that need to be addressed. The complainant is encouraged to first address any grievance at the level at which the problem occurred. If a resolution cannot be reached at that level, the Board asks that the chain of command be observed: teacher, then Principal, then Chair of the Board.
