York Elementary - Progress as Promised

  • In April 2019, Springfield voters approved Proposition S which enables Springfield Public Schools to make facility improvements to a number of schools. Due to lower than expected cost on multiple projects, an estimated $20.96 million is available to build a new York Elementary.  York was identified by the Community Task Force on Facilities as "next in line" for improvements.   On Aug. 18, 2020, the Board of Education approved to move forward with the project.
