FEDERAL PROGRAMS COMPLAINTS
The district receives federal funds and has established a complaint process to help ensure
compliance with federal grant requirements. Any student, parent, community member or employee
who believes the district has violated any regulation connected with the expenditure of federal funds
should notify the district using the process outlined in Board policy 200.521 which governs
Report Fraud, Waste, and Abuse. To report fraud, waste, abuse, misuse or mismanagement of
U.S. Department of Education (ED) program funds (this could include complaints concerning
employees, fund recipients, educational institutions, contractors, collection agencies, or lending
institutions), please use the online Hotline Complaint Form (see box below).
