Teachers and principals at 41 Springfield schools can move forward with innovative projects for their students thanks to grants they’ve received. The money, $276,869, comes from donors who gave to the Back to School Grant Program at the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools.
Dr. John Jungmann, superintendent of SPS, noted that Saturday is the 150th birthday of the district. "This is the best birthday present we've ever received," he said. "I guarantee it."
