Thursday, November 2nd: Dress for Success: Too Classy to be Sassy to Others If you see someone being a bully make sure to tell an adult. Don’t be a bully just because you think you can.

Chain of Command There seems to be some confusion on proper procedures when a patron/parent has a concern about something in regards to the school system. We would like to encourage the following protocols be utilized when you have a particular concern you would like to address. Items in red are for coaches/sponsors and items in black are for staff (in the image). 1. In both cases focus on a 24 hour grace period when calmer heads can prevail. Obviously, if something happened that was perceived as a danger or detriment to the student or staff, then we want to deal with it expeditiously, but in most cases, it is wise to wait until you have calmed down. 2. In all cases, start with the individual you have the concern with. If it is a teacher or staff member, meet with them—a coach or sponsor—meet with them. 3. If you do not feel that this rectified the situation, for a coach/sponsor concern you would go to the athletic director and principal if it is a coach and the principal if it is a teacher or staff member. 4. The next step in these procedures—if you met with the athletic director and principal, the next step is the superintendent. If you met with the principal about a concern with a staff member and you do not feel this dealt with the situation properly, your next step would be to meet with the Superintendent. 5. After all these steps have been followed and you still do not feel that it has been dealt with to your satisfaction, then you would request to meet with the board of education. It is always a good idea to try and rectify the situation at the lowest level possible. Also—with any other items of concern, it helps all concerned if you discuss these items at the lowest level possible. As an example—if you are concerned about the direction of an organization or sport, start by discussing this with the coach or sponsor. They can help direct you (if needed) to the principal, superintendent or board depending on the specifics of the situation. I hope this helps clear up any confusion about how to proceed and, if you still need clarification, please do not hesitate to contact either the principals or the superintendent to clarify. Steve Joonas Superintendent of USD 426
