About 4,200 students come to Freeport Public Schools each day. We consider it our job to open the door of learning for each one. Located in the northwest corner of Illinois, Freeport School District 145 (FSD145) serves the children of Freeport (population 26,000) and the nearby bedroom communities of Cedarville (population 750) and Ridott (population 150). We became District 145 several years after we first started educating the children of Freeport.
Today, FSD145 maintains ten busy school buildings: an elementary International Baccalaureate candidate Magnet School, five additional elementary schools (Preschool - 4th grade), two middle schools (grades 5-8), one high school (9th - 12th grade), and a smaller transitional education facility. Our dedicated staff of 750, encouraged and supported by the school board and the administration, works diligently to understand and meet the needs of each of our students.
District Superintendent Dr. Roberta Selleck is assisted in the Central Administrative Office by Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Curriculum, Dr. Patricia Burke; Assistant Superintendent for Business, Patrick McDermott; Director of Human Resources, Patricia Norman; Pupil Personnel Services Director, Karen Sanders; and Director of Equity, Teresa Hines. The Board of Education, led by President Gary Maxey and Vice-President Janice Crutchfield, also includes members Terry Groves, Dan Kreeger, James Rhyne, Abbe Hayner, and Keith Russell.
