May 18, 2022

School Construction Projects on Budget Opening in 2022:
  • Hillcrest High School
  • Jarrett Middle School
  • York Elementary School
  • Twain Elementary School
  • Field Elementary School
On April 2, 2019, 61.22% of Springfield Public Schools' voters approved an 18-cent increase to the debt-service levy to fund 39 high-priority projects: Proposition S, with a commitment to Springfield for Progress as Promised. The bond projects include renovations, expansion, and/or new construction for six schools and the creation of safer entrances at 31 schools. Space to add early childhood classrooms was created at three locations. The $167.73 million bond addresses safety, accessibility and quality issues.
