Educators, parents, and others work together every day to create safe, respectful, positive schools where each student has the opportunity to do his or her best. Everyone co-operates to make this happen. Even in the most positive school environment, though, disagreements or misunderstandings may come up.
If you have a concern about something that is happening at school, it is important to know who to contact and when to contact them. Start with the person who has the most direct involvement with the situation. If your concern cannot be resolved at this level, then the next person in the line of communication may be contacted, and so on. For example, if you are concerned about a situation that has to do with your child's classroom, you should first contact your child's teacher. If the situation cannot be resolved with the teacher, find out if there is anyone else who should be contacted before contacting the principal.
