Complaint Policy

Gifted and Talented Programming and Services

According to the Strengthening Gifted and Talented Education Act. (C.18A:35-38) “An individual who believes that a school district has not complied with the provisions of this act may file a complaint with the board of education.”

Pursuant to the law, the following procedure must be followed to file a complaint alleging iLearn Schools is not in compliance with the provisions of the act.

Please note that Complaint Policy for Noncompliance is not the same as an appeal process of placement of a student. Complaint Policy deals with alleged noncompliance as defined in the Act. Complaint for noncompliance will not affect prior program placement decisions.

A complaint submitted pursuant to this section may only allege noncompliance that has occurred within one year prior to the date that the complaint is submitted.  The complaint shall include:

      1. a statement that the identified school district is not in compliance with the provisions of this act, and the specific facts on which the allegation of noncompliance is based; and
      2. the name, address, and contact information of the complainant.

A complaint with the CEO may be filed if an individual believes that a school district has not complied with the provisions of this Act. Based on the decision of the CEO to affirm, reject, or modify the the District’s action in the matter, the individual may file a petition of appeal of the written decision of the CEO in the following order utilizing the same above described format:

      • Board of Education – Based on the decision of the Board of Education to affirm, reject, or modify the district’s action in the matter, the individual may file a petition of appeal of the written decision; to
      • Executive County Superintendent – The investigation shall be completed within 60 calendar days after receipt of the complaint and issue a written decision with proposed remediation, if necessary, to the complainant and the school district. Based on the decision of the Executive County Superintendent to affirm, reject, or modify the district’s action in the matter, the individual may file a petition of appeal of the written decision; to
      • Commissioner of Education via Office of Controversies and Disputes in accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:6-9 and the procedures set forth in State Board of Education regulations. Should the District found to be in noncompliance with the Act, remediation of the Gifted and Talented Program will take place.
