Viewing Policy: BP 1312.1 – Complaints Concerning County Employees



 

Complaints Concerning County Employees

 

The San Benito County Board of Education (County Board) accepts responsibility for providing a means by which the public can hold employees accountable for their actions.  The County Board desires that complaints be resolved expeditiously without disrupting the educational process.

 

The Superintendent or designee shall develop regulations which permit the public to submit complaints against an employee in an appropriate way.  These regulations shall protect the rights of involved parties.

 

The County Board prohibits retaliation against complainants.  The Superintendent or designee at his/her discretion may keep a complainant’s identity confidential, except to the extent necessary to investigate the complaint.  The San Benito County Office of Education will not investigate anonymous complaints unless it so desires.
