(6.24) Can I file a discrimination, harassment, intimidation or bullying complaint with my school district or the CDE?

You may file a complaint regarding discrimination, harassment, intimidation or bullying using the local complaint investigation process. [5 C.C.R. Secs. 4600(e) & 4630(b).] It must be filed within six months of: (1) the conduct or (2) the date you first learned of the conduct. The District Superintendent may extend the six month filing period by 90 days for good cause, upon a written request that describes the reasons for needing the extension. [5 C.C.R. Sec. 4630(b).]

The local investigation must be conducted in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the parties and the facts. [5 C.C.R. Sec. 4630(b)(3).] You may file a complaint directly with CDE if it meets one of the conditions for direct state intervention, as described above. [5 C.C.R. Sec. 4650(a).]
