Should I copy LBUSD or LA County Office of Education into an IVA complaint?
IVA is authorized by LBUSD and yet, as an independent Local Educational Agency, follows CA Ed Code complaint procedures and IVA's Board Policy by processing complaints internally. Please note: LBUSD would not be copied into a complaint submission. To appeal a decision, please see information below about how to appeal complaints related to the categories above directly to the CA Department of Education.
