Social & Emotional Resources

Barrington District 220 is strongly committed to building children's social, emotional and academic competencies. The Special Services support team is an important part of this community that fosters respect, responsibility and caring through instructional programs activities and a partnership between parents, administrators, teachers and the community in raising children. Because of this, we feel that students have the right to feel safe and emotionally supported in school. As part of our efforts to increase communication and provide for the social emotional well-being of students, we have provided the following online communication system.

Erin's Law - New for 2015

Erin’s law was passed in January 2013 and requires all public schools to implement age-appropriate, prevention-oriented sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education for grades pre-kindergarten-12.
If sexual abuse or assault of a student occurs, students and families should contact the nearest hospital, police or a trusted school employee for help. All District 220 employees are state-mandated reporters and are required to report allegations of abuse and/or neglect to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
