Where to Engage with SPS Online

  • Springfield Public Schools uses several social media tools in order to share news, information, announcements and more with parents, staff, the community and anyone interested in Missouri's largest provider of public education.

    The social media sites used by SPS all have free smartphone and tablet apps available, making it easy to connect from anywhere and at any time.

    The following is a list of current SPS social media sites, a link to each, and a brief description of how each is used:

  • Facebook icon Facebook: SPS uses Facebook for a little bit of everything – announcements about student and staff honors, links to stories about our schools, reminders about upcoming events, and more. “Liking” the SPS Facebook page is a good way to receive regular updates from the school district.
    Instagram Icon Instagram: From professional photographs to phone snapshots, SPS shares a variety of images of the day-to-day activities at our schools. Follow us on Instagram and tag your school photos with #EveryLearnerEveryDay to join us.
    Twitter icon Twitter: Much like Facebook, the school district uses Twitter to share links to a range of stories. In addition, Twitter is used for announcements and reminders about events and schedules. Adding the school district to your Twitter contacts is another good way to receive regular updates.
    Youtube icon YouTube: SPS shares staff profiles, districtwide initiatives and school district updates on YouTube.
