Report 2016-109: Uniform Complaint Procedures: The California Department of Education's Inadequate Oversight Has Led to a Lack of Uniformity and Compliance in the Processing of Complaints and Appeals (Release Date: January 2017)

Recommendation #18 To: San Diego Unified School District

To ensure that it can defend its extensions of complaint investigations that are authorized by existing UCP regulations, San Diego Unified should obtain agreements from complainants before extending investigations beyond the required 60 days.

60-Day Agency Response

We revised our Uniform Complaint processing list and flow chart to include a separate statement to request an extension if the response and investigation time will exceed 60 days. Copies of the list and flow chart have been provided. We also submitted a declaration by the current dedicated Title IX/Uniform Complaint Compliance Officer in which she states that for the only investigation since January which exceeded 60 days, she obtained a written extension.
