The Appoquinimink School District recognizes that, from time to time, families have questions and concerns they wish to bring to the attention of appropriate school officials. To assist in this regard, the following guidelines have been developed:

  • Any concern regarding a school-related matter should be discussed first with the staff member closest to the issue.
  • If, after discussion, the matter is not resolved, families may wish to speak to the building principal. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting the office of the principal involved.
  • If the matter is still not resolved to your satisfaction, a family may wish to speak with the Assistant Superintendent. For an appointment, simply call the Assistant Superintendent’s Office at 376.4105.
