Education Ombudsman


The Office of the Ombudsman for Public Education is a confidential, neutral, informal and independent conflict resolution resource available for families, schools, and organizations with concerns regarding equitable access to public education.

Are you a teacher or administrator with questions or concerns about your schools policy or compliance or would you like for our office to facilitate a meeting or training? Get our help!

  Online – We encourage you to use our new School Contact Form. We will allow staff to submit anonymous concerns or provide us with their contact information and a summary of the problem. Our online intake is available 24 hours a day, but someone will follow up during business hours.

  Phone – If you prefer to talk to someone in person, or need assistance completing the online intake process, please call us toll free at (202) 741-0886 during our business hours. 

 Email – Request for Ombudsman Services can also be made by emailing [email protected].

 Business Hours: Monday – Friday: 9 am - 5:30 pm (except on national holidays)
