School District seeks feedback on arts program Sept. 29
Rockford Public School District 205 is working with the local arts community to learn about the vision area residents have for the school district’s arts program.
As part of this effort, the school district — in collaboration with the Rockford Area Arts Council, the Rockford Art Museum and Rockford Symphony Orchestra — will host “Creative Conversations: A Vision of the Arts.” The café-style discussion will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 29, in Kresge Hall inside Riverfront Museum Park, 711 N. Main St.
The session will begin with a brief overview of current arts offerings in Rockford schools. Afterward, attendees will share ideas of how to improve the district’s arts program. Special guests will include Interim Superintendent Robert Willis, Assistant Superintendent for Learning Martha Hayes and Anne O’Keefe, president of the Rockford Area Arts Council.
This community gathering is one of several creative sessions that will take place to gather public opinions that will help shape the future of the arts in Rockford’s public schools. In the weeks ahead, the district will also seek arts feedback from an online survey.
