  • ADMINISTRATOR'S INVESTIGATIONS

    The PSO determines the appropriate course of action when it receives an allegation of employee misconduct. Such allegations reach the Professional Standards Office in a variety of ways, including the District's Critical Incident Reporting System and District Hotline Reporting System (Ethic's Point). 

    If PSO assigns an Administrator's Investigation to a campus or department supervisor, the investigation must be completed within 5 business days.
