Schools: Two more District 205 officials resign
By Jim Hagery
Two more Rockford Public School District 205 administrators resigned this week, marking the third official to step down since former Superintendent Dr. LaVonne Sheffield parted ways with the district last month.
According to reports, Tracy Stevenson-Olson, the district’s executive director of curriculum, and Executive Director of Professional Development Caesar Mickens will leave the district at the end of June.
Mickens and Stevenson-Olson follow communications chief Mark Bonne, who resigned last month.
While reasons why Stevenson-Olson and Mickens are leaving have not been announced, Bonne stated he wished to remove himself from the upheaval swirling around Sheffield’s tenure.
Mickens worked with Sheffield in Detroit and Louisiana. Sheffield hired him to be her staff development director when she worked for the Recovery School District in Baton Rouge. He came to Rockford with Sheffield two years ago.
Stevenson-Olson came to District 205 in 2007 as an assistant principal of the Auburn Freshman Campus. She’s also worked in Walworth, Wis., and Beloit, Wis.
