Resources for Superintendents & Policy Coordinators

Mountain State ESC provides independent investigators and other resources to School Districts for policy compliance or misconduct issues.  Many policy violations or misconduct cases end up in the administrative hearing or litigation process.  School districts can improve success and reduce the chances of litigation by using one of our independent investigators to verify the facts in a misconduct case.  Superintendents or Coordinators can begin the investigative process by completing and submitting a complaint form or by contacting an experienced investigator here.
