How to Effectively Communicate with School and District Staff
Marlette Community Schools, the Marlette Board of Education and the Superintendent expect that all concerns be treated with respect. Parents/guardians are often discouraged when they attempt to communicate with central office administrators and school board members and are sent back to building-based officials in order to resolve a problem their child may be experiencing in school.
To prevent that frustration, parents/guardians can become informed about the “chain of command,” or where to begin the communication sequence regarding their problem or concern. Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communicating directly with the educator in charge of the class/program/department. Each situation should first be addressed at the initial action level that action was taken, with appeals moving on to the next level in the chain of command.
The easiest way to communicate is via email stating the situation and the concern in writing. At Marlette Community Schools, we ask that you address any issues in the order as laid out in this Chain of Command drop down chart.
