DISD Grievance Due Process:

Grievance / Due ProcessThe Grievance process is a three tiered procedure designed to provide employees an orderly process for a prompt and equitable resolution of employee grievances. The grievant may initiate the process for a formal hearing by filing the grievance form. Grievances forms under this policy shall be submitted in writing no later than 10 days from the date the employee first knew or should have known of the decision or action giving rise to the grievance or complaint.  A grievance form can be found below or obtained from the District website, I-Net, or in the Office of Employee Relations.  The grievance form must be submitted online, by email or in the Office of Employee Relations.  Failure to submit the form may prohibit the acceptance of the grievance.  
For more information on the policy see DGBA (LOCAL and EXHIBIT).

For any questions regarding the grievance process, you may email:
