Absent extraordinary circumstances, each matter must be addressed at whatever level the initial action occurred.  If the matter is not resolved, the individual may raise it with the next person on the chain of command.  This policy does not supersede any individual’s right to contact Board members directly.  However, whenever a matter is brought directly to the Board as a whole or to a Board member as an individual, it will be referred to the appropriate individual in the chain of command for study and resolution.  The most effective means of initial communication is a personal conference, e-mail, or telephone conversation.     E-mail addresses and phone numbers can be found on the school district’s website at www.lexschools.org.
