Aurora Public Schools is committed to an environment where students, families, staff and community members can safely share their concerns. We want everyone to feel comfortable approaching site managers, supervisors, principals or APS Leadership Team members when they believe a district policy or regulation has been violated.
In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this tool. You may submit reports related to fraud, waste, abuse, and violations of district policies and procedures. You may also ask for guidance related to policies and procedures through this tool.
The information you provide will be sent to Internal Audit on a fully confidential and anonymous basis, if you should choose. If you have questions about the tool or need assistance, you may contact our Internal Audit department at 303-365-5815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Personnel Concerns and Complaints: Flowcharts and Processes
To address a personnel issue or concern/complaints they have, a series of flowcharts has been developed to help support staff in determining the type of issue and where/who to go to best address it. PLEASE NOTE: If you have a specific issue related to reporting fraud, waste, abuse or violations of district policies and procedures, please use the APS Anonymous Reporting Tool above.
View the staff concerns/complaints flowcharts
Please see the “Overview of Processes” flowchart for an overview and a starting point if you have an issue to address. These flowcharts address complaints/concerns/issues related to: general workplace concerns for any employee, sexual harassment/Title IX, discrimination based on a protected class concern, classified employee concerns regarding discipline or termination, and Licensed Employee Master Agreement concerns.
Please note that these are not the formal policies, but guidance and a tool to support staff in navigating various policies. Links to the official policies have been included in the flowcharts.
Sexual harassment for the purposes of Title IX is defined as:

*Quid pro quo literally translates as “something for something.” This type of harassment occurs when a person in authority, usually a supervisor or instructor, demands sexual favors in exchange for a job, promotion, grade, or other favorable treatment. In quid pro quo cases, the offense is directly linked to the individual’s terms of employment or academic success or forms the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting the individual.

- Sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking as those terms are defined under federal laws called the Clery Act Summary and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
