Public Schools Safe Environment Documentation

Last Update received 1/18/2017

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Safe Environment policies require that age-appropriate Safe Environment training be provided to all religious education students K-12. Parish training may be waived if the public school a student attends provides sufficient training via their own curriculum and this is documented and on file in the Religious Education Office. Below is a database of school districts that have confirmed their compliance with Erin's Law (2011), and the School Code Health Class Requirement for Grades 6-12, which require all Illinois schools to provide such training.

All Catholic Schools are required by these same USCCB policies to train and educate students, and therefore do not require letters, as they are automatically considered fully compliant. We do, however, require letters from private schools that are not Catholic.

Any school district utilizing Kankakee County Center Against Sexual Assault (KC-CASA), or Iroquois Sexual Assault Services (ISAS), is fully compliant. Any compliant school district ("Yes") does not need to be further documented (unless noted with "Update Needed"). Partial compliance dictates that non-covered grades must be covered by the parish. School district information can be found below the documentation table, for your reference.
