Calhoun’s 3 C's Communication Channel: 
 
Compliments, Concerns, & Constructive Feedback 
An effective organization requires a clearly communicated expectation to honor and follow an established chain of command by all the organization’s members and stakeholders. This practice assists in building respect and trust for all and provides the most effective way to address any issue that may arise. In our school district of over 4,200 students, 450+ employees, and thousands of parents, it is even more critical that this practice is honored.
 
To assist you with any issue, please see the list below for immediate assistance. If a parent is having an issue at their child’s school, we highly recommend that the best place to start is always with their child’s teacher. Nearly always, any matter can be addressed appropriately at that level. But if not, the principal desires the opportunity to hear any matter associated with the school they are charged to lead. Please give them that opportunity. An unresolved concern beyond that level should be shared with the superintendent.
