In 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners adopted a comprehensive Conduct Ordinance that relates to the use of the parks and property owned, operated, maintained, or controlled by Palatine Park District. A copy of this ordinance is available to view online.
Participant Code of Conduct
In addition to the Conduct Ordinance of 2004, the Board of Park Commissioners has also approved Administrative Policy 2.12.1, Code of Conduct. This code of conduct is the minimum expected behavior of every participant to ensure the safety and positive experience of all involved. The district uses a three-pillar positive behavior program as the platform to define the expected behavior of all participants. This platform is aligned and consistent with the program used within the local elementary schools to create consistency among children and parents whether at school or play at the park district. This Code of Conduct is also aligned and tied to the District’s Anti-bullying policy and the District’s Participant Disciplinary Policy when rules and expectations of the positive behavior program are violated.
