Williams Uniform Complaint
The Williams legislation requires a school district to use its uniform complaint process to help identify and resolve any deficiencies related to:
- Instructional Materials - there should be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials. For there to be sufficient textbooks and instructional materials, each student, including English Learners, must have a textbook or instructional material, or both, to use in class and to take home.
- Teacher Vacancy or Misassignment - there should be no teacher vacancies or misassignments. There should be a teacher assigned to each class and not a series of substitutes or other temporary teachers. The teacher should have the proper credential to teach the class, including the certification required to teach English Learners, if present.
- Emergency or Urgent Facilities Conditions that pose a threat to the health and safety of the students or staff - school facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.
Teacher vacancy means a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of the year for an entire year or, if the position is for a one-semester course, a position to which a single designated certificated employee has not been assigned at the beginning of a semester for an entire semester. Misassignment means the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position for which the employee does not hold a legally recognized certificate or credential, or the placement of a certificated employee in a teaching or services position that the employee is not otherwise authorized by statute to hold.
