Problem Solving Guidance When Working With a School

As a district with over 450 children, 70 plus staff members, and well over a 1,000 patrons; there are going to be times when everyone does not agree on everything.  This is one reason why Freeman Public Schools has structure defined in Policy called, “Chain of Command.”  Chain of Command is a tool used to give guidance and direct people where they should initially direct their questions and concerns.  Additionally, Chain of Command, provides guidance for next steps if and when resolution is not achieved through the initial contact and conversation.

Chain of command directs that you address any matter at whatever level the initial action occurs.  If the matter is not resolved, the individual may raise it with the next person on the chain of command.  The School Board is not included within the chain of command.  Individuals have the right to contact Board members directly or to address the Board as a whole through public comment at a Board meeting.  Whenever a matter is brought directly to the Board or a Board member, it will be referred to the appropriate individual in the chain of command for study and resolution.

In the world we live in there are many options for how people can communicate.  A personal, face to face conversation is the most effective method for addressing issues or posing questions.  A telephone conversation or an email are options as well, but may lack the personal touch of an in person conversation.  I urge all people involved with Freeman Public Schools to understand that everyone want’s what is best for our district.  The ideas regarding how to achieve what is best may not always look or sound the same and this where we must find common ground. 

Freeman Public Schools policy on, Chain of Command is #3035 which can be found on the Freeman website or follow the link below.
