 Parent and Community Engagement

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Parent and Community Engagement (PACE) ​Department was created to ensure that parents and community members are partners in the education process.

In order to achieve this, our department provides schools with support in developing programs for parents and by connecting our schools with the resources our community has to offer. ​We are committed to parent education, increasing community involvement and connecting volunteers to our schools. Our goal is to ensure that parents and the Rockford community are a critical part of contributing to the success of each child.​​​​  

Shape Rockford's Future. Volunteer.

 District Parent Advisory Council

DPAC is a group of parents who play active roles in the direction of our school district. Parents serve as the direct communication link between the RPS 205 administration and other parent leaders. DPAC also works in connection with the Parent and Community Engagement Department. DPAC is an opportunity for parents to learn about how they can be most effective in encouraging parent involvement within their schools and our district to obtain parental feedback.
