Upon receipt of the form, the Assistant Superintendent will investigate each incident and note on the form the results of that investigation, and will notify the complainant of the disposition of said complaint.

The filing of the complaint, the investigation and disposition of each case should be done in as timely a manner as possible. The Assistant Superintendent shall provide the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles with a copy of the written record of complaints within thirty days of the end of the school year.
