SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – The Springfield City School District is taking suggestions for the name of its new innovative teaching and learning center.

It will be located in the old Springfield High School at 700 S. Limestone Street, which was built in 1909. It served as the public school for all of Springfield until 1961, when it became known as South High School.

The building has not been used since the new high school on E. Home Road opened in 2008. The district plans to turn it into a center of innovative teaching and learning.

It is currently undergoing renovations and should be ready to open in late summer. The renovations are being paid for through a combination of grants.

Submissions will be accepted through 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 24. The form is available on the district’s website.

You can drop it off or mail it to Sandy Weiss in the Superintendent’s Office at Clark Center, 1500 W. Jefferson Street, Springfield, OH 45506. You can also email the form to Weiss@spr.k12.oh.us.

The School Board has established a committee to review the suggested names. The committee will recommend a name for approval at the board meeting on July 9, 2015.
