Welcome to District Deeds Sunday Reads!

This week we continue with our 2023 HAT Trick Resolution of holding the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) to FULL Honesty, Accountability, Transparency with the District Deeds HAT TRICK Handbook Chapter 4(a): “UC Violation Checkbox Page – San Diego Unified Violation Items #1 – #7”.

To get the full background and chapters of our Uniform Complaint (UC) Handbook initiative, please review the previous entries for this handbook:

District Deeds HAT TRICK Handbooks

– UC Preface and Introduction

– UC Chapter 1 – Documentation, Documentation, Documentation!

UC Chapter 2 – CDE Statute Of Limitations – #1 Reason for UCP Failure

UC Chapter 3 – The UC “FROM” Page – Break the SDUSD “Confidentiality” Myth!

Along the way we will be providing “DD HINT“‘s and “DD Tip“‘s to highlight key information that Stakeholders should know when filing UC’s.

We also urge our readers to read our Disclaimer for ALL posts on this blog:

Page 2 of the UC form looks pretty easy to complete.  SDUSD Stakeholders have 22 check boxes to choose from with associated CDE Education code listed beside each option.

DD Tip

Easy, right?  It can be but…

If you DON’T follow a specific Statute of Limitations criteria, grade verification, law qualification and evidence documentation gathering process, nothing could be further from the truth. 

But don’t let that discourage you.

UC filing success is possible IF you follow the FULL process.

Just like we mentioned in Chapter 3, MORE is better when it comes to filing UC’s.

Having MORE SDUSD Stakeholders joining into the filing of the SAME UC adds to the pool of evidence and to the credibility of the UC.

Having MORE UC BOXES CHECKED on the UC Form, backed up with DOCUMENTATION evidence for each, adds to the scope and scale of the detailed SDUSD violations against multiple Students and other Stakeholder groups.  As long as you have corroborating evidence for additional violations for the same incident, be sure to check those additional boxes.

But BEFORE you can check any of the boxes you must clearly and directly correlate your specific Uniform Complaint incidents to the specific California Education Code “federal or state law or regulation” violations.

There are two “official” sources for this information:

  1. State of California “Legislative Information” for the actual law covering the complaint.
  2. CASETEXT Legal Research Website for a reader friendly version of the same actual California laws.

We have provided a variety of  “Violation” links to both of these sources in this chapter for our readers to gain a good understanding of these laws.

But the first criteria to determine is “GRADE LEVEL”.  All of the Violations listed have a “Grade Level” implication.  Some Violations can impact ALL grade levels  Other violations may only impact 1 grade level.

For instance, the first checkbox labled “Adult Education” would only apply to “High School” or “Post” and NOT apply to “Pre-K” or other grade levels.

In order to assist you in accurately identifying the boxes to check on the UC, we have used both sources to create the following SDUSD Violation Grid (SVG) that will assist you in identifying the grade level for your UC violations:

NOTE: Excel Document version of Violations by Grade Level:  SDUSD Violations by Grade Level Grid

Once you have verified that the violation is relevant to the grade of the children impacted, the next step is to look at the actual law that has been violated.

EDITOR NOTE:  Since it would require multiple pages of links for each section of California laws, we are only providing portions of those laws below for illustration purposes.  If you want to review the full wording of a particular section of the law, just press the “Previous” and “Next” buttons on the applicable California Legislation page as shown below:

To assist you in that task in Chapter 4(a), listed below are a variety of California Education Code “federal or state law or regulation” violation links for the first 7 boxes on the form. In Chapter 4(b) next week we will provide boxes 8 – 14 and 2 weeks from now in Chapter 4(c) we will provide boxes 15 – 22.
