Mission Statement

Our mission is to coordinate community resources in order to raise student achievement, improve the health and happiness of our children, and advance the economic and social well-being of our community.

Description

Who We Are: Alignment Rockford is a collective impact organization who envisions all students graduating from high school with marketable employment skills and enrolling in post-secondary education and training. Alignment Rockford aligns community resources in support of the needs of the Rockford Public Schools. All Alignment teams form in response to a Rockford Public School District's request. They are chaired by a public school executive and vice chaired by a recognized community leader. Each Alignment team follows the same process cycle, and each phase in the cycle is composed of multiple steps consisting of solution design, community engagement, pilot implementation and evaluation, scale up, and ownership.

Since its inception in 2010, Alignment Rockford's accomplishments have included creating a dramatic rise in community awareness about the challenges and opportunities facing Rockford Public Schools, and implementing the Alignment systerm of principles, structure, process and technology to design and deliver solutions. The value of incremental tangible goods and services provided through Alignment Rockford solutions to support Rockford Public Schools is conservatively estimated to exceed $2 million.
