Public Complaints

East Austin College Prep (EAPrep) strives to provide superior service to all students, parents, and employees as well as the general public. However, EAPrep recognizes that at times someone may find it necessary to lodge a complaint with EAPrep and has created the following complaint procedure for members of the general public. Please note that students, their parents and employees should review their respective guidebooks to determine how to file complaints with EAPrep.

Step 1 – Raise Concern or Complaint with Principal. If you have a complaint about EAPrep, you should discuss the complaint with EAPrep’s Principal as soon as possible. The longer you wait to make a complaint, the harder it will be for EAPrep to investigate or otherwise address your complaint. The Principal will take the steps he or she finds necessary to timely and adequately address your complaint.

Step 2 – File Formal, Written Complaint with Superintendent. If your complaint is not resolved by the Principal, you may file a formal, written complaint with EAPrep’s Superintendent. The complaint must be filed within ten school days of your most recent contact with EAPrep’s Principal about the issue. Written complaints must be specific and, if possible, suggest a resolution. EAPrep’s Superintendent will attempt to respond, in writing, within 15 school days of receipt of a written complaint.

Step 3 – File Formal, Written Complaint with EAPrep’s Board Chair. If your complaint is not resolved by the Superintendent, you may file a written complaint to the Chair of EAPrep’s board of trustees. The complaint must be filed within ten school days of the Superintendent’s decision or within 30 days of the date you filed the complaint with the Superintendent, whichever is earlier.

The Chair of EAPrep’s board of trustees will provide a copy of the complaint record to all members of the board as well as the Superintendent at the next regular meeting of the board of trustees. Any action of the board of trustees regarding the complaint shall be taken in compliance with the Open Meetings Act. The failure of the board of trustees to act on a complaint has the effect of upholding the Superintendent’s decision.
