Complaint Process

The Corvallis School District is committed to providing a positive and productive learning and working environment. Students, parents/guardians, staff, and members of the public with concerns and complaints are encouraged to use our Public Complaint Procedure (Policy KL) to seek resolution.

Any student, parent/guardian, staff member, or member of the public may formally present a complaint. Individuals who wish to express a concern or share a complaint regarding instructional practices or resources, harassment, discipline, or discrimination should begin at the school level first. If discussing concerns with the classroom teacher, building principal/assistant principal, or your supervisor does not resolve the issue, individuals should access the school district’s Formal Complaint Process.

For assistance with this process, please contact the Assistant Superintendent’s office at 541-766-4857.

If you need interpretation services, please contact Marcianne Rivero Koetje or call 541-757-5811.
