Alignment Rockford

Alignment Rockford is an organization that supports the improvement of academic and lifelong success for youth and students in Rockford by engaging partners across the community in programs and initiatives that respond to gaps and needs identified by Rockford Public School District 205.

Our Work

Our work supports students from the moment they are born until they enter college or start the career of their dreams. It’s truly a team effort, with partners from RPS 205, the business and nonprofit communities, neighborhoods, and grassroots initiatives all working together to design and launch programs that meet the biggest needs.

Get Involved

A community relies on its public schools. Businesses need a strong school system to recruit talent and develop the next generation of leaders. Community leaders know that education drives economic development. Neighborhoods want great schools for their families. When we focus on our schools, we all win.

"Generally, we think of purpose as something young adults discover in life by exploring their own interests and values and the different ways they can contribute to the world. But research suggests that some of the foundations of purpose may be built in early childhood."

Five Childhood Experiences That Lead to a More Purposeful Life

Research suggests that our paths to finding purpose can be shaped by early childhood experiences.

For the next month, we will be starting an Early Childhood Learning series where we will share weekly posts to highlight the importance of early childhood development and education!

To start this series off, we want to share a few pictures from the Countdown to Kindergarten event at the ...Discovery Center Museum last month. Future kindergarteners got to take part in a variety of activities and families were given information on community resources from local organizations.

#KindergartenReady #EarlyChildhoodEducation

We want to set children up for success from the very beginning, this is why we've partnered with UW Health and RPS 205 to provide new parents at UW Health SwedishAmerican with “Ready to Learn With the Basics" kits to encourage healthy development.
