Board Communication

In matters of specific complaints, concerns, and suggestions, all appropriate channels should be exhausted before addressing it to the Board of Trustees. These appropriate channels are as follows: 
 
Contact the Staff Member 
The most direct route to resolving a concern is to confer directly with the person involved, (teacher, coach, etc.). The majority of concerns are resolved by a conversation between those involved. 

Contact the Campus Administrator
The campus Principal and Assistant Principal are responsible for the school’s operation. Explanations of policies and procedures and various clarifications are available in campus administration offices. 

Contact a District Administrator 
This may be a Director, Assistant Superintendent, or the Superintendent. This step should be taken only after steps one and two have not resolved the concern.
 
Contact the Board of Trustees
The West ISD Board of Trustees can be contacted only after steps one through three have been completed. The Board of Trustees may be contacted by requesting a hearing through the Superintendent’s office. The West ISD Board of Trustees serves as an appeal body in resolving disputes. A Board Member may choose to recuse himself or herself at the time of the hearing if he or she has been involved prior to the hearing.
