These guidelines are to be followed whenever there is a dispute or grievance concerning any aspect of Calvary Christian Academy’s operations, between any two parties connected in a direct way to the school. This includes students, parents, staff, volunteers, administration, and Board.

General Guidelines:

  1. It is understood that if any disputes arise which are not covered by this policy, the board will decide what procedures to follow based on a parity of reasoning from those procedures established by this policy.
  2. It is also understood that, especially during the attempted resolution of concerns, the principles of Matthew 18 and James 3 will be followed.

Students/parents to teachers:

  1. All concerns about the classroom must first be presented to the teacher by the parents, or if the student is mature enough, by the student himself. If the student presents the concern, a respectful demeanor is required at all times.
  2. If the problem is not resolved, the parents or student may bring the concern to the appropriate administrator. If the student brings the concern, he must have permission from his parents to do so.
  3. If the problem is still not resolved, the parents should appeal the decision to the Board President.
  4. If there is no resolution, they should request a meeting with the Calvary Christian Academy Board.

Parents/patrons to administrator:

  1. If parents or patrons have a grievance or dispute about the general operation of the school (apart from the operation of the classrooms), they should bring their concerns to the appropriate director.
  2. If the situation is not resolved, they should present their concerns to the Board President.
  3. If there is no resolution, they should request a meeting with the Calvary Christian Academy Board.
  4. This procedure applies to board members who are acting in their capacity as parents/patrons, and not as representatives of the Board.

Volunteers to Staff/Administration:

  1. If any volunteer has a concern about the volunteer work, he will present that concern to the staff member responsible for his oversight (teacher, director, etc.).
  2. If the situation is not resolved, they should present their concerns to the Board President.
  3. If the problem is still not resolved, the volunteer may request a meeting with the board.
