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.

Community leaders know that education drives economic development. Neighborhoods want great schools for their families. When we focus on our schools, we all win.

Did you know that one in four students in Rockford Public Schools has experienced a traumatic event?

That is why at Alignment Rockford, we are taking a Healing-Centered Student Support framework to helping area youth do better in school and life. This approach can recognize the impact ...trauma has on an individual student, and in turn, provides one-on-one support and resources to positively impact that student’s ability to learn and live a happier and more fulfilling life.

We want students to reach their full potential and we need the community’s help! Become a part of the healing-center student support coalition. This is a coalition of agencies and organizations that we are building to help move the needle on solving the difficult challenges students face around education in our community.
