1.0 Purpose and Scope

1.1 It is the intent of the Los Rios Board of Trustees to provide prompt and equitable means for resolving student grievances. A student may file a grievance or grieve an action or decision of the District or one of its colleges when the student's status and/or rights have been adversely affected.

1.1.1 Grievances relating to grades are subject to Education Code Section 76224(a) which reads:

"When grades are given for any course of instruction taught in a community college district, the grade given to each student shall be the grade determined by the instructor of the course and the determination of the student's grade by the instructor, in the absence of mistake, fraud, bad faith, or incompetency, shall be final."

2.0 Student Disciplinary Matters

2.1 Matters pertaining to standards of conduct for students and resulting disciplinary actions are subject to Board Policies and Regulations (P-2441); (R-2441).

3.0 Discriminatory Actions

3.1 Alleged discriminatory actions on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability are not grievable and are subject to administrative regulations enacted by the State Community College Board of Governors (Title 5,  59300-59360) and Los Rios Policies and Regulations, (P-2423); (R-2423); and (P-2424).

4.0 Job-Related Actions of Los Rios Employees

4.1 Student grievances pertaining to alleged actions of the Los Rios District/College employees that are covered by the Government Code, the Education Code, Los Rios Community College District Policies and Regulations, and labor contracts will be handled by management outside of the student grievance process.
