Welcome to the SPSD website. We hope you find our website provides you the information you need to be informed about our eight schools and our district. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Our district mission, "Enriching Lives Through Quality Learning For All," is the cornerstone of all of our work. To access our Comprehensive Education Plan which outlines our District Goals and ongoing school improvement work, please follow the links.

An important component of our district focus continues to be our facilities. Thanks to a supportive community, all five of our district's elementary schools provide students with equitable learning spaces throughout the district. A School Board appointed Secondary School Facilities Committee has been working for six years to study and plan for renovation or reconstruction of our middle school. Middle School plans are being developed through the State Department of Education's Priority School application process.

As a school department we are proud of our progress toward improving student achievement and value our community partnerships toward supporting the youth of South Portland. Please explore our district and school website for more information.

Due to the impending storm, South Portland Schools will be closed on Tuesday, March 14. Forecasts have the snow beginning in the morning and intensifying around noon. We are and will be in contact with South Portland Public Works throughout this event. If the storm winds down on Tuesday night we are hoping that the streets, sidewalks and schools will be in reasonable enough shape in time for the schools to be open on Wednesday, but this will be determined by length and intensity of the storm. Stay tuned as this develops.
