DuPage Co. (ECWd) –
During the last COD Board Meeting I presented a formal complaint against Robert Breuder and another regarding electioneering with COD personnel as it appeared Board Policy 15-27 gives a person that right. (At the 3hr-11min-15 sec mark of the video I read my complaint)
I presented my complaint during the meeting based on the ONE PAGE board policy 15-27 which is void of ANY procedures for anyone to file a complaint. (Board Policy downloaded 7/02/15 -SEE PAGE 122)
I submitted a FOIA request June 19th, 2015 for numerous documents of which one was for a “copy of procedures to be followed when a person wishes to make a complaint of wrongdoing”. I asked for that document because the board policy available through the COD web page has no guidance or instructions for anyone to file a complaint.
I received a response today and to my amazement, they sent me board policy 15-27. I downloaded the file they provided and was shocked to see it is not the same as what is downloadable to the students, faculty and the public. (FOIA provided board policy 15-27)
The downloadable file, or PDF above, is a ONE PAGE board policy 15-27 adopted 3/19/09.
The policy provided in my FOIA request is 3 pages of which the first page matches the adopted 3/19/09 policy on the web page however page 2 and 3 are what appears to be a new policy not found on the web site. This new version was adopted 10/01/09.
How convenient the policy to report wrongdoing that is available on line just happens to be void of how anyone is suppose to file a complaint.
Although this could be a simple over-site, I have a hard time believing that to be the case in light of all the wrongdoing at COD. Is it possible that the laundry list of wrongdoing is what it is because there was no method for people to file complaints? At a minimum, this is a colossal internal control failure.
