- inform student(s) or their parent(s);
- direct their inquiries to the appropriate person;
- receive, investigate and give an opinion on the merits of a complaint to the Council of Commissioners in order to recommend, if required, any appropriate corrective measures.
Please refer to the By-Law no.8 for more information.
