Live, Learn, Play

Rockford Public Schools, the Rockford Park District, Alignment Rockford and City of Rockford are working with more than 30 community partners for an unprecedented summer extended learning plan to help Rockford-area students recover from the academic and nonacademic challenges of the pandemic. This is a coordinated, strategic, and intentional effort to redesign our summer programs and support Rockford students year-round – both this summer and in the future.  

Live, Learn, Play merges educational curriculum with recreational curriculum to develop our youth – our future workforce – to prepare them for college, careers and life after school. Dozens of community organizations are offering summer programs under this umbrella program to blend meaningful, fun and engaging academic support into existing recreational, faith-based or community-based camps, after-care and summer programs.  

Our common goal is to connect students who need further enrichment and support with the community partners that can help. RPS 205 certified teachers and staff will meet students where they are -- at community centers, Rockford Park District camps and events all summer. And community organizations will push into RPS 205 schools, too, to connect with, engage and support students.   

To volunteer, donate or support this initiative, contact Alignment Rockford Executive Director Anisha Grimmett at 779-774-4389, or visit the partner websites listed below.
