Springfield Public Schools

There are more than 60 facilities in the Springfield Public Schools' system, with the average age of those buildings 48 years. So every little bit helps when it comes to updating existing infrastructure. On Monday, school administrators applauded the recent donation of a local church for safety and security upgrades. KSMU’s Scott Harvey was there. 

Tuesday is the school board election for the Springfield R-12 school district. There are five candidates who are vying for two seats. All of the candidates say they have important qualities to bring to the table. In this first part of our two-part series, we look at candidates who come from within the district as former educators. KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann files this report.
