Reporting Misconduct

Employees

  1. Advise your work location administrator of the complaint and allow him/her the opportunity to address the complaint at the work site.
  2. The work location administrator shall make a determination as to whether the incident is one that can and should be competently and comprehensively addressed at the work site. Administrators throughout the District are expected to address issues and/or conflicts at the worksite. When an issue cannot or should not be addressed at the worksite, it is to be immediately referred for review under PIM, through the corresponding Region/District Office.
  3. If the complaint is being made against your immediate supervisor, advise his/her immediate supervisor of the complaint.
  4. In cases where it is not possible to notify the site administrator, you may report all serious allegations of misconduct to Miami-Dade School Police (M-DSP) at 305-757-COPS. Allegations involving sexual harassment should also be reported to M-DSP.

Pursuant to the PIM, listed below are examples of non-criminal incidents that SHOULD be addressed at the worksite and may not have to be reported to the Incident Review Team (IRT) via the PIM:
