Students need to know where the school stands on issues, task force Chairman Larry Bolles said.
"If somebody says something racist, it becomes a problem for everyone," he said.
After more than two months of meetings closed to the public, the DeKalb School District's diversity task force delivered an 85-page report with recommendations to the school board on Tuesday.Establishing and implementing core values was just one of the recommendations the 15-member task force made after surveying parents, teachers and students and meeting and interviewing several different focus groups.
"You have to read the whole report to really understand," Bolles said before giving a more-than-40-minute presentation.
Larry Bolles, head of the DeKalb School District's diversity task force, on Tuesday addresses some of the recommendations made by the force during a presentation of an 85-page report to the school board.
Bolles was tapped to head the task force by high school principal Larry Stinson.
Bolles, Northern Illinois University's Judicial Office director, said he has worked on handling race issues at NIU and has been a consultant on race to many other universities, including the University of Michigan, Boston University and the University of Nebraska.
But Bolles assured McDavid that the findings of the task force reflect what high school students said, not just what students on the task force said.
When Bolles said the names were given by Stinson, students standing in back of the board room looked at one another and nodded knowingly.

Principal Larry Stinson said Larry Bolles, the head of the judicial office at Northern Illinois University and a black man, has agreed to work with him to appoint 12-15 people from a range of backgrounds and ethnicities to the task force.
Bolles said his vision of the task force is as a "very positive committee" that's "going to be educationally focused."He acknowledged that he had heard rumors about friction between black and white students at the school, but added that he can't vouch for their accuracy.The appearance of the "E.G. Weekly," he said, was not a surprise.
Some of the task force's meetings are likely to be open to the public, but Bolles said there is good reason for holding others in private.
"Sometimes you can't get people to come and talk to you in front of a large group of people," he said.
DeKalb High School - like the rest of the district, the county and the country - has become more diverse in recent years.
Dangers of cult perplex NIU officials, 2 Mar 2006 [cached]
Larry Bolles, director of NIU's Judicial Office, commented that last year about seven students came to him convinced that The Boston Church of Christ was a cult.
The students explained that there was a process of stages to go through in order to become part of the church. It was when these students reached the final stage that they clearly believed the church was a cult and refused to complete the process.
Bolles said that although this information is unsettling, there is no concrete evidence that the church is a cult as no students documented formal complaints, not let the Judicial Office use their names.
Bolles noted another hindrance to taking judicial action since students did everything within the church voluntarily.
NIU's Judicial Office, during a routine study on the church, was given advice from Chicago State University that NIU should undoubtedly be concerned about the Boston Church of Christ. Bolles said Chicago State University was very cautious about what they said, but made it clear that NIU should monitor the actions of the church very carefully.
Bolles said he was not aware of any investigation of The Boston Church of Christ, and that he wasn't sure if NIU could legally start an investigation.
"We (NIU's Judicial Office) would have to be convinced of a threat to students, because if church members ask what the threat is, we have to articulate what the threat is," Bolles noted.

NIU Judicial Officer Larry Bolles, who headed the DeKalb School District Task Force on Racial Discrimination and Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation, outlined his credentials for several minutes at last week's DeKalb School Board meeting.
Bolles has worked in diversity training with the U.S. Department of Education, as well as on college campuses such as the University of Michigan, Stanford University and Boston University.He headed the NIU Task Force on Diversity in 1983, appointed by former NIU President William Monat.
He said that many major corporations also have initiated diversity surveys and training.
Bolles then presented findings that likely will require significant changes in the culture at DeKalb High School. (See related story on the process used by the Diversity Task Force, formed at the request of the school board.Bolles appointed all task force members, except for students, who were selected by DHS Principal Larry Stinson.)
Bolles also criticized academic tracking and said, "That's not a good thing, especially for the students of color when they're not on the high end."
