HOW TO FILE A COMPLAINT


FIND A COMPLAINT FORM
You can use the Uniform Complaint Procedure form created by the CA Department of Education or use the one that is supplied by your principal or school. If you are filing a complaint about harassment, do not fill out a Williams Complaint Form.

FILL OUT THE FORM
Make sure to be as detailed as possible. The more information that you give in the report, the stronger the complaint is. Give details about what happened, when, where, who was involved or was a witness, and which school or district staff you told about the incident(s). If you have any documents or other evidence that back up the complaint, you should attach them to the form. The form can be filled out by any student, a parent, or interested third party or organization, for a student.

TURN IN THE COMPLAINT FORM
Make a copy for yourself before turning it to the appropriate person at your school. You should turn it in directly to your principal or to the superintendent of the school district.
