School district officials in Rockford are partnering with NIU's College of Education to better train administrators. The goal is to build leaderships skills among Rockford's 100 public school principals and assistant principals.
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.
