2. The Director shall investigate the problem and shall render a decision on whether to sustain or overrule the decision of the instructor or administrator. The decision shall be given to the student, in writing, within five days of the written notice of appeal.
3. Any appeals beyond the Director shall be made according to the following order: Senior Director Career Tech, Adult and Multiple Pathways; and the School Board of Polk County.
