A Note from Superintendent Chuck Sincere

August 2021


Welcome Back Message from the Superintendent


Dear Families and Students of the Springfield Local School District:


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. Our students returned to the buildings August 18. We are excited to have all of our students and staff back in the buildings. Springfield is a wonderful place to work and learn. Our staff is committed to working together to ensure that we provide our students with the best educational opportunities possible as well as striving for continual improvement.


Our continuous improvement efforts are critical to our school district and the Springfield and Lakemore community. We work hard to ensure that our schools are well maintained and that our students can learn in a safe environment. Our students engage in activities that foster independence, skill mastery, and personal growth. There are many opportunities for student success embedded in our programs.  These programs help to ensure students have the necessary skills to be productive citizens.


As we start this school year, we know that we will face unanticipated challenges and opportunities. Please know that we always work hard to meet those challenges and embrace the opportunities that we have to improve our school district. As superintendent, I am proud to be part of a district where tradition is held in high regard and every student has the opportunity to succeed.


Finally, I would like to thank everyone for supporting our schools. Parents and community play a vital role by supporting and partnering with the school.  Partnerships result in maximizing resources for the greater good.  We encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s education.  Parental involvement enhances student adaptation to school.  Students will attend school more regularly and experience less occurrences of discipline.  These students have higher self-esteem and well-developed social skills.  They complete homework and earn higher grades and test scores and ultimately increase future career success. All of us at Springfield Local School’s look forward to working with you, and wish you a positive and healthy 2021-2022 school year.


Thank you,

Chuck Sincere
