What is a Williams Complaint?
A Williams Complaint, another type of UCP complaint, regards instructional materials, emergency or urgent facilities conditions that pose a threat to the health and safety of pupils, and teacher vacancy or misassignment and may be filed anonymously. Williams Complaints are filed with the principal, or their designee, of the school in which the complaint arises. Schools have complaint forms available for these types of complaints, but will not reject a complaint, if the form is not used as long as the complaint is submitted in writing.
If a Williams Complaint requirement is allegedly not being met, a Williams Complaint form may be also be obtained at a school office or an agency/district office.
