Support SPS Career and Technical Education
We believe that education is a community effort. Our schools face an uncertain funding future. Our community’s investment is critical to sustaining and increasing the quality of our local schools. Whatever ability you have to help, please consider investing in our shared future.
Student Internships and Job Shadows
Springfield Public Schools understands that our career technical education, or CTE, programs are strong drivers for student engagement and provide a foundation for our community's future workforce.
SPS students have access to more than 100 different CTE courses that allow students to discover their future careers through rigorous academic courses, access to college credits and industry certificates, as well as personalized and career-specific workplace learning experiences.
