We investigate complaints received no more than 180 days after the alleged incident. We will process complaints that are complete. Once the complaint is received, we will review it and send an acknowledgement letter stating if the complaint will be investigated.
We have up to thirty days to investigate the complaint. If more information is needed to resolve the case, we may contact the complainant. The complainant has thirty days from the date of the letter to send the requested information to the investigator assigned to the case.
If our investigator is not contacted by the complainant, or does not receive the additional information within thirty days, we can administratively close the case. A case can also be administratively closed if the complainant no longer wishes to pursue their case.
After the investigator reviews the complaint, one of two letters will be issued to the complainant: a closure letter or a letter of finding. A closure letter summarizes the allegations and states that there was not a Title VI violation and that the case will be closed.
A letter of finding summarizes the allegations and the interviews regarding the alleged incident, and explains whether any disciplinary action, additional training of the staff member, or other action will occur. If the complainant wishes to appeal the decision, they have ten days after the date of the letter or the letter of finding to do so.
