District Complaints

The Vacaville Unified School District strives to, "Encourage and improve trust and positive working relationships with staff, students, families and community."  The District is committed to providing an excellent educational experience for all VUSD students and seeks to resolve conflicts at the lowest level.  This page provides staff, students and community members with resources to resolve complaints regarding VUSD schools, programs, or employees.

Uniform Complaints

The Vacaville Unified School District has the primary responsibility to insure compliance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations and has established procedures to address allegations of unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying, and complaints
alleging violation of state or federal laws governing educational programs and the charging of unlawful pupil fees.

The Vacaville Unified School District shall investigate and seek to resolve complaints using policies and procedures known as the Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP) adopted by our local board.  Unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying complaints may be based on actual or perceived age, ancestry, color, ethnic group identification, gender expression, gender identity,
gender, disability, nationality, national origin, race or ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or on a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, in any program or activity that receives or benefits from state financial assistance.

The UCP shall also be used when addressing complaints alleging failure to comply with state and/or federal laws.

Williams Complaints

The Eliezer Williams, et al., vs. State of California, et al. (Williams) case was a landmark Superior Court case to provide all students equal access to instructional materials, safe schools, and quality teachers. 

The Williams complaint process shall be used when addressing complaints regarding sufficient instructional materials, school cleanliness and repair, and appropriately credentialed teachers.
