GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES


MSAD #60 has adopted this grievance procedure to provide a local avenue for persons with disabilities to raise concerns about whether MSAD #60 is fully meeting its obligations under state and federal laws to protect persons with disabilities.  This procedure is intended to meet the requirements of the federal Rehabilitation Act and the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.


Questions about this grievance procedure should be directed to the ADA/504 compliance coordinator, Susan Austin, MSAD #60, PO Box 819, No. Berwick, ME 03906.


STEP ONE


A person with an identifiable disability, or someone acting on that person’s behalf, may file a written grievance regarding compliance with state or federal disabilities laws with the building principal where the grievance arose, or with the ADA/504 compliance coordinator.  If filed with the ADA/504 compliance coordinator, that person shall forward it to the appropriate building principal. No grievance will be heard if it involves actions that occurred more than 60 days prior to the filing of the grievance.


The building principal, after consultation with the ADA/504 compliance coordinator, shall respond in writing to the grievance within fifteen (15) working days of its receipt.  Extensions of fifteen (15) working days may be allowed if necessary to address fully the issues in the grievance. The principal’s written response shall be forwarded to the grievant and to the ADA/504 compliance coordinator.


STEP TWO


If dissatisfied with the response, the grievant may obtain a review by the Superintendent of the principal’s decision.


The grievant must request that review within fifteen (15) working days of the decision by the Principal.  The Superintendent, after consultation with the ADA/504 compliance coordinator, shall respond in writing to the grievance within fifteen (15) working days.  Extensions of fifteen (15) working days may be allowed when necessary to address fully the issues in the grievance. The Superintendent’s written response shall be forwarded to the grievant and to the ADA/504 compliance coordinator.
