The Fontana Unified School District's programs, activities, and practices shall be free from discrimination based on race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identify or expression, or genetic information; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these perceived characteristics.
The Fontana Unified School District prohibits, at any district school or school activity, unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any student or employee based on the above. The Fontana Unified School District has the responsibility to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing education programs. The district shall investigate any complaint alleging failure to comply with such laws and/or alleging unlawful discrimination, and shall seek to resolve those complaints in accordance with the district’s uniform complaint procedures.
The early informal resolution of complaints at the site level is encouraged whenever possible.
Once you have sought resolution with those directly involved and a resolution is not reached, there are 3 main categories of complaints for the next step: If unsure of your category, a General Complaint is an appropriate start since it can be adjusted to another type as needed.
A General Complaint is one that does not fit into either of the other categories. This form is used following a discussion with the site manager or principal that does not lead to a resolution. Once a general complaint is filed, it can be moved to either of the other categories if it is appropriate.
