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.

In August the Maine State Board of Education voted to place a South Portland Middle School on the list of “approved” building projects. In partnership with the Maine Department of Education (DOE) we have embarked on a complex twenty- one step process, providing us with an exciting opportunity to receive significant state funding to meet the learning needs of South Portland middle school students far into the future.

South Portland Schools are once again hosting Flu Clinics with the VNA Service in October. To learn more about this event, goo.gl/WWgH8A

Dear members of the South Portland school community. It has recently come to our attention that a website located at (www.southportlandredriots[dot]com) has been created that uses the School Department’s name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to convince users to pay to sponsor certain elements of the site, purchase “Red Riot” apparel, and to use something called “Red Riotbucks” and “Red Riotmail.” Please be aware that this website is not affiliated with the South Portland School Department in any way.
