Our District

Springfield Platteview Community Schools has had the pleasure of serving our students in an exemplary manner for the past six decades. We take pride in consistently providing the very best in curriculum, extracurricular activities, athletics programs, fine arts, and traditional educational experiences. 

Accreditation

Springfield Platteview Community Schools receives accreditation yearly through the Nebraska Department of Education-Rule 10. 

All public school systems are required by state statute to be accredited. Accreditation is a designation earned by complying with all provisions of Rule 10: Regulations and Procedures for the Accreditation of Schools. These regulations and procedures are intended to establish equality of educational opportunity for all students in public elementary and secondary schools. 

Accredited school systems are also considered to be approved for legal operation for purposes of state law. Approved private or parochial schools are eligible to apply for and maintain accreditation under the provisions of Rule 10. 

Accreditation is granted for one school year from each July 1 through the following June 30. Renewal is based upon the school system’s compliance with Rule 10 during the prior school year. Failure to comply with mandatory requirements for legal operation in Section 003 of Rule 10 may cause a school system to lose its accreditation during the school year. 

Springfield Platteview Community Schools last had their last school improvement visit November 12 to 14, 2019. The following two documents will assist in summarizing the visit:

Our History

On September 30, 1958, residents living in 13 rural Class 1 school districts in Sarpy County, Nebraska, voted affirmatively (by a margin of 6 to 1, and with a 70% turnout) to merge into a single Class III school district. The new district became Springfield Platteview Community Schools.

On April 2, 1959, the patrons of SPCS passed an $890,000 bond issue (with 85% support) to buy land and build a new junior/senior high school that continues to be known as Platteview. We have experienced tremendous change since our beginnings nearly 60 years ago.
