Student Assignment in Rockford Schools

A big decision on Student Assignment in the Rockford schools.

The committee that's been researching the issue all summer is recommending a neighborhood based school system.

This mean having kids go to a school near their home.

The group will present its recommendation to School Board Education Committee Members who ultimately have the final say.

The committee is also recommending that boundaries are drawn to make all neighborhood schools similar in socio-economic status.
