The Rockford Chamber of Commerce has worked diligently over many years to ensure
that students and employers can connect and be aware of the careers available
in our region. We are at a time when quality workforce is scarce and where
students need to receive the best information and experience they can on career
choices. On Oct. 11 the Rockford Chamber, the Career Education Associates of North
and other partners hosted the Rockford Region Manufacturing Day. We paired 12 high schools, including all
within RPS 205, with various manufacturers in the region for tours and
education on a career in manufacturing. Over 400 students participated in the
tours, a general session, and a manufacturing expo. The students were very
interested and amazing! The manufacturers were incredibly impressed! Career
exposures don't have to wait for special days like this one. Reach out as a school
to area employers, or vice versa. There are many willing partners!
The state released formal guidelines on Tuesday about what in-person learning will look like this fall.
This message might not surprise you, but we wanted to share our disappointment with our students and graduates.
RPS 205 teachers and students will comply with all Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines.
Please enroll for the 2020-21 school year before July 10.
Parents/guardians and students are required to bring a student ID to receive a device.
