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
- Special Interest Camps - Summer can be a precarious time for students. 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!

SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

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!
