Collection Historical Note

People Who Care was established March 19, 1989 by a group of concerned citizens and parents led by Ed Wells and Larry Curtin.  They opposed Rockford School District #205's January 1989 plan “Together Toward a Brighter Tomorrow” which sought to reduce costs for the school district by closing ten schools and restructuring others.  People Who Care’s two biggest concerns were the creation of large elementary schools which would replace neighborhood schools, and the closing of West High School, “the only naturally integrated high school.” Unfortunately, this plan placed the greatest burden of school closings and transportation on minority, low income and high-risk students who lived on the west side of the Rock River, Rockford’s natural dividing line.

People Who Care sought to modify the plan through meetings with the Board of Education and administrators of District #205, but the District refused to change its plan.  On  April 21st People Who Care filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.  However, it became obvious that since the District was quickly implementing its plan, pursuing the slow, bureaucratic route to justice would not be able to address the matter in time.

Ed Wells recruited Chicago civil rights attorney Robert C. Howard to represent People Who Care.  On May 11, 1989 Howard filed suit in U.S. District Court (People Who Case, et al v. Rockford Board of Education, case number 89 C 20168).  District #205 was charged with violations of both Illinois’ Armstrong Act and the Fourteenth Amendments’ guarantees of equal protection under the law.  Motions for a preliminary injunction and a restraining order to prevent the District from disposing of facilities were filed in conjunction with the suit.

On July 7, 1989, before the start of testimonial hearings which could have delayed the start of the 1989-90 school year,  People Who Care and the District 205 School Board, under new superintendent Maurice Sullivan, reached a settlement on the preliminary injunction aspect of the suit.  As a result of the settlement four neighborhood elementary schools Barbour, Church, Ellis and Stiles were reopened, and the controversial “Mega” elementary school in the Wilson Middle School building [scheduled to house over 1000 students, mostly minority or otherwise “at risk” students] was cancelled.  In addition, it was also agreed that the “Magnet” school concept, which People Who Care fought for would be used for the development of an elementary school at Washington Center during the 1989-90 school year and at another southwest quadrant school in the 1990-91 school year.  Unfortunately, People Who Care’s goal to retain both West and Auburn High Schools on the west side of District #205 was not achieved.  West, a residentially integrated high school, would have its minority community disbursed to four other high schools,  placing most of the burden of integration on minority and west side students.  Also as a result of the settlement agreement, District #205 was required to completely re-evaluate the entire secondary school system during the 1989-90 school year.  The settlement, called the Interim Agreed Order, was under the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court and Judge Stanley Roszkowski.

In February 1990, the plaintiff’s attorney’s fees in regards to the case began to be addressed in court.  The Rockford School Board appealed the fees and trials occurred sporadically through the length of the entire People Who Case, et al v. Rockford Board of Education lawsuit.  Ultimately, in 1996, all decisions were reversed and the fee award went back to the district court.

Within the first year of the trial, attorney Howard began to distance himself from the main body of People Who Care, who believed he was not listening to their concerns.  In January of 1991, Dr. Eugene Eubanks was assigned to evaluate District #205's compliance with the Interim Agreed Order (1989).  He was asked to make recommendations for future remedial measures.  On April 24, 1991 the Second Interim Agreement was signed which allowed for an additional $6.8 million to be spent, plus $25 million in bonds to be raised for new and refurbished schools. Judge Roszkowski said the Rockford school district could use the Tort Immunity Act to fund the cost of the remedial measures, which allowed the district to levy additional property taxes and issue bonds without taxpayer approval.

Meanwhile, People Who Care incorporated on May 29, 1991, and Howard converted the lawsuit to a class action suit alleging that the Rockford School District had engaged in a pattern of intentional segregation and discrimination.  Judge P. Michael Mahoney was referred to the case on June 29, 1992.  From April 1993 to February 1994 the Rockford School District was on trial.  Mahoney charged the district with consistently breaking the law by segregating minorities and he issued a Comprehensive Remedial Order for Rockford Public Schools in August-September 1996 which introduced “controlled choice” into the district.  The Comprehensive Remedial Order (CRO) also called for magnet schools, creative arts curriculum and court oversight of building plans and boundary changes, with required semi-annual implementation progress reports.

On October 26, 2000 the Illinois Supreme Court declared illegal the Rockford School Board’s use of the district’s tort fund to pay for “remedies” in the People Who Care’s school desegregation case.

  In April 1997 the appellate court struck down key provisions of the CRO.  It was modified in late summer of 2000, only to be reversed in April of 2001.  It was at this time that the CRO was set to be terminated by the following June as desegregation of the school district was considered completed.  Despite this decision, a Second Interim Order was filed on April 24, 2001 as the CRO was being fazed out.  Both parties agreed to continue efforts to ensure equality in District #205 but did not address liability.  Teachers’ unions appealed the Order, as they objected to portions that affected collective bargaining rights.  In April of 2002 these portions of the Order were eliminated.  In June of the same year the Board of Education resumed control of Rockford School District.
