About The Superintendent

Mr. Craig Vaughn

The 2024-2025 school year marks my 27th year in education and my 10th year as Chief School Administrator for the Springfield Township School District.  After student teaching in grade one, I spent the first eight years of my career teaching fourth grade.  In 2006 I began my administrative career at the Southampton Township School District, where I held positions as Curriculum Supervisor and Supervisor of Special Services.  During my tenure at Southampton, I also worked under a shared-services agreement with the Tabernacle Township School District; this opportunity allowed me to work with teachers from five different schools in grades preK through eight in support of nearly 1500 students.  Following that I worked in the Marlboro Township School District where I served as Director of Human Resources for its eight schools, 5000 students and nearly 900 employees.  My varied teaching and administrative experiences have prepared me well for the unique challenges presented by the Superintendent/Principal position.  As an educator and, more importantly, as a parent I will always put the best interests of our students first as an advocate for their intellectual, social, and emotional growth. 

Dear Springfield School Community,

I view my time with the Springfield Township School District with a tremendous sense of gratitude for the opportunity I have been provided; an opportunity to help continue a tradition of excellence in education and build upon the incredible foundation established by the Board of Education, staff, parents, and community.  The dedicated staff of Springfield Township Elementary School continue to work diligently to position our school at the forefront of best practices in curriculum and instruction, educational technology, social, emotional, and physical well-being, and safety and security.  With the support of the community and the work of a Board of Education committed to preserving a long-standing dedication to education, our district strives to maintain academic excellence in a safe, secure environment.  As we continue to move forward, I remain excited to be a part of the many great things happening in Springfield.

The rich history of our school and its place at the heart of our community should be a source of pride for all members of Springfield Township; I hope that you will join me in taking pride in our school district and the many endeavors we undertake for our students.  As your superintendent, please know that I value feedback and insight that will help make our endeavors successful and our district stronger.


Craig Vaughn, Superintendent
