This is the recommendation detailed in the Holmdel School District Calendar: 


When questions or concerns arise, parents should first contact their child’s teacher. Most questions or concerns can be addressed at this level. However, if further resolution is required, then it is logical to communicate with someone at the next level. It is District policy that problems be pursued through the following channels and that each person will ensure that all previous levels have been contacted. The proper chain of command should be as follows:


 → Teacher

 → Counselor 

 → Department Director/Supervisor

 → Assistant Principal

 → Principal

 → Assistant Superintendent

 → Superintendent

 → Board of Education
