Grievance Procedures

Grievance Policy for Parent and Community Concerns

The KIPP Colorado Schools Board of Directors (Board) will respond to all parent and community concerns. The first step in our grievance process is to bring the grievance to the party with whom there is a disagreement. The escalation of grievances is as follows:

At any given time, an individual or a group may bring grievances to the Board for any reason. Such grievances will be submitted to the Board Chair at least one week prior to the next Board meeting. Grievances submitted later will be addressed at the subsequent meeting of the Board. Emergency issues will be dealt with on an as-needed basis, with the Board responding at or prior to its next regular public meeting. Every effort will be made to respectfully address each matter to the satisfaction of the individual or group that presented the grievance. The Board, as necessary, shall direct the Chief Executive Officer (and in turn, the school leader or other responsible party) to act upon the grievance and report to the Board. The Board shall, as necessary, render a determination in writing. Any appropriate documents will be made available to the person filing the grievance.
