Complaint Process

  • The District encourages the early, informal resolution of complaints at the site level whenever possible. Parents or guardians of students in the Vallejo City Unified School District are urged to discuss their concerns directly with the school site employee(s) in question.

    The outline below sets forth the process for addressing a student’s academic or safety concerns and will govern communications between staff and others in the VCUSD community.
