SDST has adopted a 1:1 program in grades 4 through 12, which will provide an electronic device to each student. Grades 4th through 8th will be used throughout the day and remain in the school building. The 9th through 12th grades will be issued to each student, which will be assigned to each student to be used throughout the day and taken home and returned to the district at the end of the school year. This initiative is to provide all learners with ubiquitous digital access to support personalized learning, engagement, rigor, achievement, and the development of 21st century skills and literacies which support the District Mission Statement;
"Educate and develop all students as learners and citizens who are high-achieving, resilient and responsible in a changing global community."
Springfield Township School District is a dynamic learning community committed to the unique needs of today's adolescent. Our vision promotes a safe and welcoming environment that values learning, fosters both critical and creative thinking, and encourages personal responsibility. We provide students with the tools they need to thrive in the 21st century.
We believe in providing an inspiring learning environment where all students reach their potential. A dedicated faculty with high expectations, a focus on the academic and affective needs of middle level learners, and the use of differentiated instruction serve as the foundation for student success.
