Public school rally tonight at Booker T. Washington Center
By Jim Hagerty
As the Rockford Board of Education prepares to vote on Superintendent Dr. LaVonne M. Sheffield’s resignation, a local group is planning to sway her to remain at her post.
To support the cause, the group is holding the “Rally for Fairness in Our Schools,” Monday (April 11) at Booker T. Washington Center, 524 Kent St. The public event starts at 6 p.m.
Admission is free.
Sheffield announced last week her plans to leave District 205 at the end of the month. According to reports, Sheffield’s severance package includes approximately $105,000, three months worth of health care benefits and unused sick and vacation days.
The Tuesday, April 12 Board of Education meeting will be held again at Ellis Arts Academy, 222 S. Central Ave.
