All educational and vocational opportunities are offered without regard to age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color or mental or physical disability. A lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in educational and vocational programs.
Uniform Complaint Procedures
It is the intention of the Board of Education that every member of the community shall have the right for prompt and orderly redress of a grievance relating to an alleged violation of federal and state laws or regulations of education programs. Therefore, pursuant to California Code Regulation, Title 5, Section 4600, the District has developed necessary procedures to process a complaint regarding educational services provided by the adult school. A copy of the uniform complaint policy is available at each site where adult education is offered. A complaint should be addressed first to the adult school principal. More information about the process can be found at our district website.
