            Level 3: If dissatisfied at Level 2, the student/parent/guardian may file a written appeal to the Superintendent. Within ten (10) days of receipt of the grievance, the Superintendent shall request a conference with the aggrieved student/parent/guardian or render a written decision.

            Level 4: If resolution is not achieved at Level 3, the student/parent/guardian may request the Superintendent to schedule a brief hearing before the Board at its next regular meeting.

      The aggrieved student/parent/guardian may: select a representative to accompany him/her at each level; ask the representative to state the facts in written form; request a written decision at each level.

      For the discussion and consideration of the grievance, time and place, which do not interfere with classes or activities, will be selected.
