School districts receiving Title I funding are required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education Division of Federal Programs to have a written procedure in place for public school administrators and parents to file a complaint against the school district with regard to Title I services that may be provided to a public school. Following are the steps that should be followed in the event that a complaint with regard to services should arise.
If you have a concern regarding the educational services provided to the eligible students at your school, you should first contact Brian Slamecka, Assistant Superintendent at (724)214-3101 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Public Schools Complaint Form may be completed and also be sent as a next step.
