Code of Conduct

It is the responsibility of the Park District staff to provide each program participant an environment that is safe and secure, therefore, every participant is expected to treat the other participants and Park District staff, volunteers, equipment and facilities with respect.

Mandated Reporting Policy & Procedure

The Park District fully complies with the State of Illinois Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. The Park District will make every reasonable effort and precaution to prevent, detect, handle and report cases of suspected child abuse and neglect for children who come in direct contact with Park District programs, area, and facilities. This includes providing training on this issue to employees and/or anyone else involved in interacting with or supervising children.

When an employee has reasonable cause to believe that a child known to him/her in a professional or official capacity may be abused or neglected, the employee must immediately:
• Inform his/her supervisor of the situation;
• Report or cause a report to be made to the DCFS child abuse hotline; and
• For cases involving a DCFS ward, complete and submit an Unusual Incident Report.

Community Event Postings

Park District programs have first priority on the facility bulletin boards. However, if park programs and events will not be affected, and there is space available, other groups may utilize the community bulletin boards per the District’s Event Posting Procedure.
