Rockford Public SchoolsWe are pleased to announce we’ve been selected to partner with Rockford Public Schools (RPS) to design two new elementary schools as part of their 10-year facilities master plan. The project will replace five outdated elementary schools within the district’s footprint with two new 84,000 sf four-strand buildings that place emphasis on 21st century learning environments and fulfill the district’s mission to “collaboratively engage all students in a world-class education.” Our integrated team of architects, engineers, and interior designers will collaborate with the district on planning and design processes that yield best-in-class learning environments that are cost-effective, durable and sustainable.

“The district has a tremendous vision for its future and it is strongly rooted in the student experience and preparing the next generation for post-K12 success,” notes Stuart Brodsky, CannonDesign senior vice president and principal-in-charge for the RPS project. “We are honored to continue our partnership with RPS to create dynamic learning environments that contribute to enduring student success.”

CannonDesign’s K-12 team has worked with the district for the past year on additions/renovations to six other elementary schools. Our overall expertise designing for K-12 clients spans more than 60 years and includes over 43 million square feet of design solutions across the country. CannonDesign has recently worked with regional clients including Chicago Jewish Day School, Chiaravalle Montessori School, Chicago Public Schools and Champaign Community Unit School District.
