The Senior Connection
The Springfield Board of School Directors believes that senior citizens of the District deserve special passes to school activities.
Although many senior citizens no longer have children in school, everyone reaps the benefits of education. The Springfield Board of School Directors is dedicated to making Springfield School District the best it can be, and we recognize that good public schools strengthen our property values and the opportunities our students will enjoy in the future.
All of us depend on an educated workforce to sustain a healthy economy and community and to preserve the middle class and our free market economy. If we hope to maintain or improve the quality of life in our communities, attract new businesses, and continue to prosper as a nation, then education is essential.
Springfield School District has emphasized and expanded educational and cultural opportunities for senior citizens through the Gold Pass in an effort to communicate to those who are affected by education. Education at its best is a partnership between schools, parents, and community. The Gold Pass is an example of our philosophy to reach out to the community and make our schools accessible to every one in the community.
