Process for Concerns
In Walled Lake, our philosophy is to resolve issues with the individuals closest to the situation. We encourage parents to form partnerships with teachers and to work together on classroom and student concerns. We believe that the best solutions are developed collaboratively by the people most familiar with the issue.
All complaints regarding the district should be resolved at the lowest possible administrative level. Neither the Board of Education as a whole nor any individual member will entertain or consider communications or complaints from teachers, parents, patrons or employees until they have first been referred to the superintendent. Only in those cases where satisfactory resolution cannot be made by the administrative staff shall communications and complaints be referred to the board after hearing evidence submitted by the superintendent.
The mission of the Walled Lake Schools, in partnership with parents and community is to become the best educational system in America so all students demonstrate they are caring, responsible and knowledgeable citizens.
Please note: With appropriate attention to your concerns, through this due process design, very few unresolved problems will remain. In rare instances, those few problems that remain unresolved will likely involve an Assistant Superintendent. Final resolution attempts progress to the Superintendent.
