The Rockford Public Schools continues to upgrade its various athletic facilities. The district plans to have a track in place at Jefferson High School by the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Currently, Jefferson’s track team splits its practice time between Jefferson and Wyeth Stadium at Auburn High School. The new track will save the district in travel costs and more importantly track athletes in travel time. Please contribute to the Rockford Sports Coalition to help offset the costs of the new track.
