A 21-member Board of Directors governs the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools. Board members represent a variety of professions in our community. Many attended Springfield Public Schools as children and have children currently in the district. Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month. The Foundation is also proud of its Advisory Board, which provides a wealth of volunteer support.
