Agreements, Guidelines & Policies

Americans with Disabilities Act

The Sugar Grove Park District complies with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination in the provision of programs, services and activities to individuals with disabilities. We invite any resident with a special need to contact our staff so that a smooth inclusion may occur.

Inclusion Services

Inclusion services provide opportunities for people with disabilities and those without disabilities to participate in recreational activities together. If you would like to enroll in a park district program and need special assistance, just request additional services by marking the “special accommodations” section on the Park District registration form. The request will be forwarded to the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association Inclusion Coordinator who will help determine appropriate assistance needed to participate in the program. Please provide at least a two-week notice for an inclusion request.

Intergovernmental Agreement with Fox Valley Park District

The Park Board has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Fox Valley Park District that allows Sugar Grove residents to participate in Fox Valley Park District programs and facilities for the same fees they charge their residents. The resident discount applies to both season passes and daily admission rates.

Behavior and Discipline Guidelines

A caring, positive approach will be taken regarding discipline. Each participant, or facility patron is expected to:

  1. Treat all participants/patrons and staff with request.
  2. Respect all equipment.
  3. Follow all rules so he/she will not place him/herself or others in a dangerous situation.

The purpose of discipline is to help a participant/patron/develop self-control and learn to assume responsibility for his or her own actions. The District will use positive statements and reinforcements to redirect negative behavior. Should a participant/patron need more than that, a “timeout” period or a suspension may be initiated.

The District will handle disruptive behavior in the following manner:

  1. The participant/patron or the parent/guardian will be informed of the specific disruptive behavior, what corrective action on their part must be taken and what the potential consequences will be. An incident report will be completed and filed.
  2. If the behavior continues, the staff will inform the participant/patron or parent a second time. An incident report will be completed and consequences will be initiated.
  3. If there is no change in behavior, the participant/patron will be dismissed from the class/program or facility; a refund will not be issued for the remaining class days or membership.

Disruptive behavior is defined as any behavior that caused, or could lead to, personal injury of participant or others. Examples: hitting, kicking, throwing things, defying, running away, rude or obscene language, threats or any behavior that disrupts the facility or program. Disruptive behavior, in the broad sense, is any behavior that takes an instructor away from the rest of the class for long periods of time, disturbs the normal operation of a facility or threatens staff/patrons.
