Some of you SPS parents may not be aware but there is a procedure to follow if you have aschool-level concern and if you don't follow it, you may be spinning in circles (without knowing why).
Here's a link to our SPS Ombudsman page that gives many helpful details.
I put this forth because a parent from one school got up at the most recent Board meeting and said that 22 parents had phoned Superintendent Banda with a concern and he hadn't answered one call.
As it turns out, he couldn't. There is a clause in the principals' contract that says a chain of command has to be followed and district staff have to first allow principals the opportunity to solve their own problems.
Meaning, if you have a teacher problem, go to the teacher first.
If you have a principal problem, go to the principal first.
THEN, you can get district staff involved.
You can, of course, always write to the the principal and also cc staff and/or the Board (and I recommend that always).
But you need to start at the school level first.
