Springfield Township School District Goals
2017-18 School Year
- The superintendent and administrative team will develop a comprehensive action plan to guide the district in the development of a Creator Space program, focusing on the integration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics) activities, robotics, maker-initiatives, and higher-order thinking within our curricular programs. During the 2017-2018 school year a framework for the Creator Space program in K-6 will be developed, and preparations (including scheduling, professional development, resource procurement and curriculum writing) for the full implementation of the program by September 2018 will be finalized. By June 2018, 100% of the district’s K-6 general and special education classes will participate in at least one trial Creator Space activity per trimester. The district’s Creator Space Steering Committee consisting of Board of Education members, parents, teachers and administration will be utilized to assist in this process.
- The superintendent and administrative team will develop a comprehensive action plan to provide analysis of the district’s PARCC results against the academic performance of students (as measured by local assessments and progress reports). By June 2018, 100% of the regular education and special education teaching staff for grades three through six will have engaged in correlation studies to make determinations regarding PARCC data implications on curriculum and instruction (at both the grade and individual levels).
- The superintendent and administrative team will develop a comprehensive action plan in alignment with student and staff wellness. During the 2017-2018 school year the district will engage the entire school community in activities designed to improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being, with a focus on both informational/educational and hands-on active opportunities. During the 2017-2018 school year, 100% of the district’s staff will participate in wellness activities offered via professional development, a minimum of one whole-school activity per month will be provided for all students, and a minimum of three presentations / activities will be offered for the school community.
