Encore Education Corporation strives to make sure that all stakeholders are properly served.  Part of this promise of service is adopting a Universal Complaint Process.

  • START HERE – Whenever there is an incident, concern, or complaint (whether you are a teacher, student, staff member, or other stakeholder) an incident report or a formal letter must be filed in the front office of the campus where the report is being made.  All filings should start at the school level.
    • For discipline and safety issues, the complaint should be filed with our Assistant Dean of Students, Mr. John Van Horn.  He can be reached through his administrative assistant Ms. Arielle Luna, 760-956-2632, aluna@encorehighschool.com, or by mail 16955 Lemon Street #G, Hesperia, CA 92345
    • For academic and staff issues, the complaint should be filed with our Dean of Academics, Mr. Tom Steed.  He can be reached through his administrative assistant Ms. Arielle Luna, 760-956-2632, aluna@encorehighschool.com, or by mail 16955 Lemon Street #G, Hesperia, CA 92345
    • Anonymous reports can be filed by placing an incident report in a sealed envelope and giving it to any staff member or dropping the sealed envelope into a staff box (A and F buildings) addressed to the person that should open the envelope.
  • SITE INVESTIGATION – Once a complaint is filed, it needs to be investigated.
    • Time Required – Investigations take time so it is important to be patient.  Anyone reporting an incident should allow no less than seventy two (72) business hours to investigate a claim. Depending on the claim, investigations can take less or more than seventy two (72) business hours.
    • Notification – If a person files a complaint directly to a Dean, they will be notified upon completion of the investigation.  Anonymous complaints will be investigated and reported as logical.
    • Confidentiality – If the investigation is protected by confidentiality laws for staff and/or students, outcomes of the investigation may be protected by law and you may not be allowed to know what the results and/or actions are coming out of the investigation.
    • Results – If a complainant is unsatisfied with the investigation conducted at the site level, they can file a complaint directly to the Encore (District) Executive Office.
  • EXECUTIVE (DISTRICT) COMPLAINTS – When a complainant is unsatisfied with the results from a site based investigation, they can file a complaint directly to the Executive Officer Team.  Whenever there is an incident, concern, or complaint (whether you are a teacher, student, staff member, or other stakeholder) an incident report or a formal letter can be filed to the Executive Officers.  If no prior complaint was filed at the site level, the Executive Office (District) can refer the investigation back to the site for investigation.
