Superintendent's Update

April 2024

Dear Cedar Springs Parents and Staff,

With Spring Break 2024 in the rearview mirror, the students and staff at Cedar Springs Public Schools see a clear path ahead to the finish line. With roughly eight weeks of school left, the pace of learning and life will accelerate from now through the end of the school year. Students and teachers recognize the scope of the challenges and opportunities on the horizon as they enter the final stretch of 2023-2024. Together, we are up for the challenge.

In addition to the work being completed by our students and staff, we have several teams of contractors on campus making great progress on various bond construction projects. Visitors to campus this spring will see fewer visible signs of active construction compared to the last three years. Currently, the only active project under construction is at Beach Elementary School. If you have a chance to drive past the building, you will see that the work at Beach is significant. We are replacing the original three academic wings with an efficiently designed two-story wing. The new design of Beach Elementary successfully incorporates the original gymnasium and the cafeteria, as well as several classrooms that were added in the early '90s. We are also in the process of wrapping up the design of our last significant project planned for Cedar Springs High School. We will start moving dirt for that project next fall, with a planned completion date of August 2025.

Cedar Springs Public Schools has much to be thankful for this spring. We must acknowledge the members of our community committed to making Cedar Springs Public Schools a place where each of our talented students can thrive. We know none of these things are possible without a supportive community. Strong communities build strong schools, and strong schools build stronger communities.

With respect and appreciation,

Scott B. Smith
Superintendent of Cedar Springs Public Schools
