MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

Education Partners, hello.

Here is this week’s helping of District 202 news and information…


  • President Obama this morning issued guidance telling public school districts to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity, rather than their gender at birth.

Recognizing the sensitivity of this issue, please be aware that District 202 will:

o   consult with our attorneys and the Board of Education for clarity and direction

o   review our policies and procedures and adjust them, if necessary

o   communicate our practice, procedure, and policy to our families and community when that work is done

  • Stadium renovations are scheduled at Plainfield High School-Central Campus and Plainfield South High School from May 16 through September 12, 2016. As a result, the associated outdoor tracks and outdoor stadium fields will be closed to walkers and other stadium-related activities.

  • Once again this year, District 202 is proud to host the StarTalking Chinese immersion classes in June at Plainfield North High School. Register now.
