Student Grievances & Complaints
“Nothing in this policy prevents the student from contacting the Workforce Board (the state licensing agency) at 360-709-4600 at any time with a concern or a complaint.”
Students who have a complaint or who would like to appeal a dismissal must request in writing an appointment for an interview with the school director. The written request should include the following information:
- Student’s full name and current address
- A statement of the concern including dates, times, instructors, and if applicable, other students involved
- Date of complaint letter and signature of the student
- Three dates in which the student would be available for a meeting with the school director. These dates should be within 10 business days of the complaint.
The school director will notify the student in writing of the appointment date in which the concerns or appeal will be addressed. Every effort will be made to bring an amicable closure to the concern. Should it be necessary, a panel of instructors will hear the concerns and will be asked to assist in bringing a resolution to concerns and/or appeals. The student will be notified in writing within five business days of the outcome of the meetings. Should the contract be cancelled by either the student or the school the last date of attendance will be used as the date to calculate any refund in accordance with the school’s refund policy.
