School Ombudsman

Code: HL-8120.7700

Offices within the formal school system at elementary, secondary and postsecondary levels that review, investigate and respond to complaints lodged against the school district or college/university by students, parents and others who may question specific personnel actions, policies or procedures. The offices function as an independent, impartial third party to help students and their families find a solution to problems which may range from discipline issues to concerns about teaching staff acting inappropriately. School ombudsman services do not replace the school district's or college/university's grievance procedure or other appeal processes.
