• Williams Uniform Complaint Procedure

     

    Filing a Complaint

    When: A complaint alleging unlawful discrimination or retaliation must be filed no later than six months from the date the discrimination or retaliation occurred, or six months from when the complainant first learned of the unlawful discrimination. The Superintendent or designee may extend this timeline by up to ninety days for good cause, upon written request by the complainant setting forth the reasons for the extension.

    How: A student, parent, guardian, employee, individual, or organization may file a written complaint alleging discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying on the basis of a protected characteristic under the District's Uniform Complaint Procedure by sending a complaint to the District's Title IX Coordinator (contact information listed above).

    The Uniform Complaint Procedure is available below in both English and Spanish.

    Accessibility: If you need assistance putting your complaint in writing, please contact Human Resources at 707-778-4608 or mharris@petk12.org. You may file a complaint anonymously, but the District's ability to investigate and respond may be limited by a lack of information.

    You may also file a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights.
