At Vacaville High School we believe the best way to achieve success in the classroom is through regular communication between the student, teacher and parent. Therefore, the following steps are required if and when issues between a student and his/her teacher arise:
- Parent, and/or student and teacher meet to identify and analyze the problem
- Issues are clarified
- Modifications are explored
- A plan, including timeline of at least three weeks, is developed and implemented
A copy of the plan agreed upon by the parent, student and teacher should be given to the student’s assigned administrator.
If a consensus is not reached, or the plan implemented is not successful, parent request for class change should be directed to the appropriate administrator. The class change will be honored provided subject level placement is available and corresponding increase in enrollment in the receiving class is appropriate.
We take this opportunity to remind all of you that our district is committed to celebrating and affirming our diversity. We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or hostile work environments based on race, sex, age, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or other protected characteristic. This is a reminder to all that requests for transfer of a student based solely upon the teacher’s protected characteristic will be rejected. If there is a complaint by a parent about a teacher based on unlawful discrimination against any protected group, we will follow the Uniform Complaint Procedure set forth in our Board Policies and Administrative Regulations, including requiring they be put in writing, immediately advising teachers of such complaints, encouraging mediation between the parties and fully investigating all such complaints, including interviewing all those with pertinent knowledge.
Thank you for your efforts and cooperation in ensuring student success.
