Equality in Springfield Schools

PROCLAIMATION FOR THE NEED FOR EQUALITY

IN THE SPRINGFIELD SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION

 

The Springfield School Community has undergone a painful transformation over the past three years. During this time, our children and staff have dealt with construction, moving and uncertainty. We have endured knowing that the end result is two beautifully equal schools that would foster learning and growth for all of Springfield’s children.  Now that the buildings are nearly complete and the final hour grows near, the district is faced with the decision of what the final composition of these schools is going to be.

 

As Springfield citizens and staff, we would like to declare that we believe in having two EQUAL schools and request that the following factors lead the decision of how to distribute our children into those schools:

 

EQUALITY for All Springfield Students

• Similar total number of students

• Comparable class sizes for all grades

• Comparable allocation of staff and resources

• Similar socioeconomic and special needs demographics

 

Whether the K-2/3-5 proposal is chosen as the best option to distribute Springfield’s children, or if another workable configuration is proposed, we request that equality be maintained as the most important issue to consider as you move forward.
