For Parents

The educators of the Rockford Education Association believe that everyday is an opportunity for success. We strive to provide your children with a quality education on a daily basis. The REA knows that parent involvement is one of the keys to student success. That is why we have provided the resources below to assist you in helping your child to become successful.

The Illinois State Board of Education sponsors a web site at www.IllinoisParents.org providing resources for parents and schools to strengthen school communities. Especially worthwhile is their listing of organizations throughout the state that provide specialized resources for specific issues. The site is http://illinoisparents.crc.uiuc.edu/stateres.html.
