California Department of Education Special Education
Compliance Complaints

The Educational Equity Compliance Office is responsible for responding to special education compliance complaints filed with the California Department of Education (CDE).

A parent, guardian or advocate may send a written complaint to:

Procedural Safeguards Referral Service
Special Education Division
California Department of Education
1430 N. Street, Suite 2401
Sacramento, CA 95814


The CDE must resolve the complaint within 60 days. It will review all relevant information and make an independent determination about the alleged education code violations. An on-site investigation may be conducted if necessary and a written decision will be provided to the complainant addressing each allegation.

Thirty days after the timeline for corrective action, the CDE's Focused Monitoring Techincal Assistance Unit contacts the complainant to confirm that the complaint has been resolved. Additional information regarding the filing of a state complaint may be accessed by calling the Procedural Safeguards Referral Service at (800) 926-0648.

A complaint may also be filed through the District's Uniform Complaint Procedures through the Office of Specially Funded Programs. A report of findings is developed within 60 days of receiving the written complaint addressing the complaint's special education allegations of education code violations.
