The commission investigates and processes complaints against institutions. Investigation and resolution of complaints take varying amounts of time. If the Education Licensure Commission (ELC) takes formal disciplinary action, you may obtain a copy of that final order from its website at www.osse.dc.gov. If the ELC closes your complaint with a finding that there has been no violation committed, the ELC will notify you of such in writing. Complaints to the ELC made on this form must be signed and dated by the individual making the complaint.
Complaints are made available to the institution or facility so that he/she may file a response to the allegations with the ELC.
The ELC will not accept any anonymous complaints
