The California Department of Education provides a comprehensive complaint process that must be implemented by each school district. Click here. What you will find are the precise legal regulations concerning your rights and the obligations of the school. If you ask the school for a guide to filing a complaint and the school administration ignores, deflects, or otherwise avoids providing you with assistance, then you should consider either hiring a local lawyer to assist, or contacting the superintendent of schools in your district and bringing the complaint directly to the top official.

You're providing formal notice that you are exercising your rights under the law. If the school doesn't take steps to resolve the issue, then you would have grounds to file a lawsuit. Unless and until you file your complaint, you have not legally "exhausted all administrative remedies" and a court must refuse to consider any lawsuit.

If you need further clarification, concerning this matter, please feel free to ask.
