Partnership Description:
Springfield College Partnerships

Springfield College has a number of partnerships with a wide variety of schools. Our most comprehensive and long standing partnership is with the Springfield Public Schools. Most recently we celebrate 6 years of our "S-Cubed"/Working Teachers Program, a Springfield College (SC) and Springfield Public Schools (SPS) Partnership in support and development of effective educators in the critical need areas of early childhood, mathematics, moderate disabilities and science who are teaching in Springfield schools that are in need of improvement.

In addition to our district-wide partnership, we have some long standing partnerships with individual SPS schools. Further we partner with a wide variety of schools in the Greater Springfield Area including, Belchertown, Chicopee, Ludlow, East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Agawam and non-public schools: Square One, Trinity Nursery School and our own Springfield College Child Development Center (see below for details).

We also have long standing relationships in a great number of school districts in the Greater Springfield Area where we have been placing student teachers for over 50 years.
