Superintendent’s Corner

Welcome to Springfield Platteview Community Schools! Thank you for visiting our website and viewing information about our district. Our district is one of the best-kept secrets in the metro Omaha area. Our test scores, graduation rate, attendance rate, and low number of disciplinary issues show that we are one of the top school districts in the state of Nebraska.

Springfield Platteview Community Schools is a suburban school district located just directly south and adjacent to the Greater Omaha Metropolitan area, only 25 minutes from downtown Omaha! We educate approximately 1,100 students within a K–12 framework and pride ourselves on small class sizes and personal learning opportunities for our students. We have an excellent professional faculty and staff, along with a highly supportive community and parents.

Our district moved into the cutting edge of technology in the 2012-13 school year with our 1:1 iPad Learning Initiative, where every student in grades 7–12 was issued an iPad at the beginning of the school year. To start the 2015-16 school year, every student in the elementary grades received an iPad. This makes the iPad available to every student in our district.

Our main goals with the iPads are twofold: 1) to increase student engagement in the classroom, and 2) to help prepare students for college and career readiness by focusing on 21st-century skill development. Technology is increasingly becoming more and more a part of life and successful businesses, and we want our students to be on the forefront of being able to use this technology to compete in their future career choice.

Our students encounter many positive and successful experiences as they attend school every day. Students in our district are afforded many opportunities to participate in activities and athletics, unlike larger school districts where a student may have to specialize in one or two areas to be able to participate. We compete at the Class B level in activities and sports.

Please spend some time on our website to look at our school district, schools, and programs. You’ll find valuable information that will convince you that the level of educational excellence is very high in our school system. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.

Thanks for visiting!
