Springfield District and Curriculum
Springfield Public Schools, being community-minded, is driven by student success. By meeting each student’s needs, the quality of both their experience and their education improves. The district motto proclaims the vision of “Every Student a Graduate Prepared for a Bright and Successful Future.” Parents, families, communities, educators, teachers, and students all work together for this goal, thereby making the district as a whole better prepared for success in the 21st century.
We currently cover the following Springfield-area school district: Springfield Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
While Springfield District Schools have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in curriculum, they also use the Springfield Quality Education Model (S-QEM), which was a result of an outreach program focused on identifying the community’s definition of a “quality education.” Working with over 1,000 community members, winning strategies for delivering a quality education were created, and later adopted by the School Board.
The school system is also committed to specific initiatives, focused on providing the best possible education for all district children. These results-driven initiatives include: Arts Matter, Cultural Competency, Global Institute for Teacher Advancement, High School Focus on Improvement, Read 180 and Reading Apprentice, Master Teacher Program, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-focused schools), and the Student Voice Project.

Keeping Informed: Recent Springfield Educational News

In order to not only keep kids busy, but also to possibly give them a jump-start on the upcoming school year, several Springfield area schools host summer programs with learning in mind. The Kids in Transition to School (KITS) program focuses on promoting kindergarten readiness emerging literacy and social skills for pre-K children. Parent meetings are also held on a weekly basis.
- Gift of Literacy - The Seventh Annual Gift of Literacy Celebration was held this past May. This remarkable program is a product of the joint effort from the Springfield Rotary and the Twin Rivers Rotary, and since its inception has been able to serve over 6,300 students and distribute over 8,000 books. The program begins in the classrooms as children get to sample that year’s book selection and pick out one title for themselves. The day of the celebration, students are bussed to the LCC Forum, where their books are distributed, small group reading sessions are hosted by local celebrities.
- Bus ROADeo - In June 2012, the Oregon Pupil Transportation Association’s Oregon State Safety Exercise (known as the “Bus ROADeo”) was held to the delight of hundreds! Five Springfield bus drivers participated in the competition, featuring 11 driving performance tests, a written knowledge test, a pre-trip test, and a “surprise test.” The driver with the overall high score claimed the prestigious Sweepstakes Trophy. Challenge categories included: Safe Student Loading, Diminishing Clearance, Railroad Crossing, Curb Line, Back-up Alley, Wheel Track (testing the ability to judge where wheels are tracking), Serpentine (maneuvering through cones), and Stop Line (depth perception). Lunch was served by the Springfield Kiwanis, and proceeds went to fund 2012’s two-week Safety Town summer camp. A great time was had by all!

Chalk Talk: How to Stay Motivated in School
Even the most dedicated student can get in a rut and need a little motivation. But there are things you can do to put you back on the right track again. 1) Find a mentor, someone you view as being positive, who can help to inspire you. Listen to what the y have to say, what advice they have to offer. 2) Try to stay positive – listen to music, pursue things that make you laugh, think about happy times in your life. 3) Face life – as tempting as it may be, don’t balk when challenges arise, because even though the current task may seem impossible, the consequences of slacking off may be even larger. 4) Forgive yourself – you are only human; you’re going to make mistakes. Those who succeed learn from their mistakes and try again, regardless. 5) Forgive others for their mistakes - most offenses are unintentional, and the only person hampered by your anger is you. As the saying goes, by carrying around a grudge, you’re allowing someone else to live in your brain rent-free. Using these tips, you’ll hopefully be able to get your “mojo” back, and get back to the business of succeeding!
