Superintendent, Dr. David Goodin
Dear Spring-Ford Area School District Community,
Student learning is the primary objective for schools. While there are many secondary objectives school personnel must address, the primary reason for the existence of schools is to provide an environment whereby students are engaged in meaningful interactions with information from a variety of disciplines. There is a need to cultivate intellect through the mastery of facts and timeless knowledge – educated people should be familiar with a wide range of classical works. However, knowledge is not static, it is an ongoing event. There are essential skills and subjects that allow an educated person to function at a basic level in modern society. Progression through the learning continuum needs to allow students to develop their own unique interests through the application of knowledge gained at earlier stages of academic development. The result is personal fulfillment for students, as well as significant benefits for society at large, as learning is applied solving “real world” problems and issues. This type of educational experience is gained through effective instructional practices at the classroom level.
The Spring-Ford Area School District Board of Directors, Administration, Faculty and Support Personnel are committed to the education of your children. The education of a child is an ongoing process and we here at Spring-Ford are honored that you have chosen our school district to be your education provider.
Dr. David Goodin
