The RPS 205 Communications Department is responsible for writing news releases, facilitating media requests, managing the district's social media accounts and website, and maintaining the 205 VIBE™. It offers marketing support along with assistance at special events such as graduations and Academic All-Stars. The team also manages Let’s Talk!, a two-way communication
platform for questions, comments, suggestions, concerns or compliments.
RPS 205 showcases its students, staff, programs and alumni through photos and videos produced by Communications. Videos are available on YouTube and Comcast Channel 20. Rockford School Board and Committee meetings are broadcast live on Channel 20. Community members who aren't Comcast subscribers can watch Channel 20 via the live stream.
Communicating a school closing
If necessary, a school closing announcement will be made via automated call to parents/guardians, social media, rps205.com, email and phone call to staff, and an email blast to local media. Read more about school closings.
Design & Branding Guidelines
