• SPS Afterschool Programs
     
    Springfield Public Schools actively seeks to create after-school enrichment opportunities for students, through grant funding and partnerships with other agencies and organizations such as Willamalane Park and Recreation District and the University of Oregon. 
     
    In 2009, Springfield Public Schools was awarded its second 21st Century Community Learning Center After-school grant to six schools: Centennial, Douglas Gardens, Mt. Vernon and Page elementary schools, and Agnes Stewart and Hamlin middle schools. That funding source has ended. 

    Springfield is currently receiving funding through another 21st Century Community Learning Center after-school grant for its Miller Afterschool Program, better known as MAP, which serves Springfield High School and several schools that feed into it: Guy Lee Elementary, Two Rivers-Dos Ríos Elementary and Hamlin Middle School.
