How do I make a complaint against a teacher?

You can access a complaint form online. Visit and on the left hand side of the webpage, there is a link called “Report Educator Misconduct.” If you go there, the third link should be “Public Reporting- Complaints.”

Note: the complaint must be a first-hand report, meaning the person who witnessed or heard the misconduct directly must file the report.

The Division of Professional Practices investigates allegations of misconduct. The Committee of Credentials reviews the allegations and may recommend adverse action against a credential or application. The Commission on Teacher Credentialing votes whether to accept the recommendations of the Committee.
