What We Do
A team approach is used when responding to parents' or community members' concerns.
If an issue involves a teacher or school, please contact the teacher or principal first to try to resolve the matter with the people most directly involved in the case. Most concerns can and should be resolved at the school building level. If an issue cannot be resolved there, we will assist in finding a resolution.
The Customer Care Center can:
- Provide information or clarification about policies or procedures.
- Find the right person to handle issues or concerns.
- Talk to people who can research and investigate an incident.
- Serve as a "go between" for parties involved.
- Mediate an impartial resolution.
- Identify alternatives.
To decide if you should contact CPS' Customer Care Center, ask the following questions:
- Have I tried to solve this problem at the school?
- Am I unsure where to turn next?
Before contacting the Customer Care Center, be prepared to share the following information with a member of the Customer Care Team:
- Student's name, age, grade and school
- Names of teachers, principal or assistant principal, or other school officials already contacted
In written correspondence, please describe the situation and include your name, address and phone number.
