Uintah School District has the responsibility to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding its personnel and students. No discrimination against any person with a disability should knowingly be permitted in any of the programs or practices of the school system.
Any person who believes he/she has been denied program access or otherwise discriminated against is encouraged to initiate a complaint by completing an internal Complaint of Alleged Discrimination Form and forwarding the form to the Human Resource and/or Student Services Director.
The complaint should be submitted by the complainant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation.
The Human Resource and/or Student Services Director will investigate all alleged complaints of discrimination and will respond to the individual making the complaint within 30 calendar days of written request.
The Human Resource and/or Student Services Director will provide a written response which will include the following:
• Summary of the results of the investigation
• Determination that states clearly whether or not the District failed to comply with civil rights law
• Notification that you can appeal this determination: how and where to file an appeal, and to whom
it must addressed
• Any measures determined through the investigation necessary to bring the District into compliance
with civil rights law
If the response by the Human Resource and/or Student Services Director does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, the individual making the request may file an appeal.
The availability and submission of an internal complaint of alleged discrimination does not preclude filing a complaint of discrimination with any appropriate state or federal agency, nor is the use of this procedure a prerequisite to the pursuit of other remedies.
