ELMHURST, IL – Elmhurst School District 205 has backtracked on its decision to keep secret the records for teachers’ equity training.

Late last week, the district released to Patch a total of 32 pages of documents associated with training for teachers last year. The program cost the district $46,000.

The release happened more than a week after the district decided to keep the records in question under wraps. It originally cited the exception for trade secrets under the state’s open records law.
