Title IX

Title IX is a federal law that says a school district has a responsibility to promptly and efficiently respond to gender discrimination. This can be in the form of sexual misconduct, dating violence, stalking, or retaliation. Elmhurst Community School District 205 takes this responsibility very seriously and ensuring these matters are handled with the utmost care and discretion.

To better serve our students, families and staff, we've collected references outlining District 205 policies & procedures, training and community resources.
