Grievance Procedure: Title II/Section 504

The grievance procedure may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging a failure to accommodate and/or discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of website services, activities, programs or benefits by the West Virginia Department of Education.

The complaint should be in writing unless an alternative method for filing is requested, such as a personal interview or an mp3 recording of the complaint. It should contain the following information about the alleged discrimination: 1. Your name, address, phone number and email address; 2. The name of the website against whom the complaint is filed; and 3. A statement of the problem.

Your complaint should be submitted by you or your designee as soon as possible, but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation to:
