A measure to allow Rockford Public Schools to issue $139 million in bonds to finance a massive rebuilding plan passed by a wide margin on Tuesday. However, the District’s work has only just begun.
Dr Ehren Jarrett has been chosen as the Rockford School District’s next superintendent. The soon-to-be-former assistant superintendent says the District is thrilled that the issue passed. But, he says, a lot more planning is necessary, because the District wants to be careful with the authority it has been given.
