We pledge to take on an even greater role in the journey to a more sustainable City of Springfield.

We have hired a director of sustainability who oversees the District’s foodservice Resource Management and Recycling Programs, chemical management and school gardens. By utilizing SMART (Sustainability Management and Reporting Tool) for schools, the director will be able to focus on and support the key parameters outlined in the City’s Sustainability Plan in partnership with the office of Parks and Recreation and the Springfield Green Committee.
