It is the expectation of the district that all personnel will be responsive to parents’ concerns and attempt to resolve problems at the most appropriate level. Failing that, it should be referred to the principal or designee and, if necessary, subsequently to the superintendent or designee. It is neither required nor desirable that an employee face abusive language or behavior.

This policy promotes mutual respect, civility, and orderly conduct among district employees, parents, and the public. This policy is not intended to deprive any person of his/her right to freedom of expression, but only to maintain, to the extent possible and reasonable, a safe, harassment-free workplace for our students and staff. In the interest of presenting district employees as positive role models to the students of this district as well as the community, the Irvine Unified School District encourages positive communication and discourages volatile, hostile, or aggressive behavior.
