    The Office of Legal Compliance manages the compliance services for schools and the departments of Henry County Schools.  Our office assists stakeholders (employees, community members, and families) with grievance processes and policies, records requests, and interpretive services.  Our goal is to provide timely and professional customer service to all stakeholders.   

    The Legal Compliance Office is responsible for the management of compliance in the following areas:

    • conduct annual and on-going compliance training for staff as it relates to Henry County Board of Education Policy, State and Federal laws
    • manage formal complaints and grievances in accordance with Board policies, as well as state and federal agencies (PSC, DOE, OCR, DOJ, EEOC), filed by students, parents, current and former employees
    • coordinate and manage interpretive services to provide meaningful access to the instructional program for parents/guardians
    • process records production for the school system regarding educational and employment records (Open Records, Third-Party Requests, FERPA Requests, and Subpoenas) - routine records requests by parents/guardians for educational records are handled at the school where the student was last enrolled
    • collect, analyze data, and produce reports in response to federal and state requests (i.e. Civil Rights Data Collection)
    • Title IX compliance
