On Oct. 10, 2018 we launched the 205 VIBE as a unique way to share opinions and experiences about Rockford Public Schools. We've read, watched and listened to your stories through 152 blog posts, 12 videos and 14 podcasts on the 205 VIBE. Each published post, video and podcast has helped to slowly drive change in our district by improving our culture. None of this would be possible without you.
As the school year comes to a close, I'd like to shoutout our top three bloggers: Bridget French, Anthony Stone and Zachary Larson. These individuals took the time to submit their stories and give us an inside look at their worlds. If you see Bridget, Anthony or Zachary, please thank them for their willingness to share.
