Superintendent's Welcome

On behalf of the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center Board of Education, Administration, staff, and students it is with a great deal of pride that I welcome you to this snapshot of the CTC. 

I am fortunate to lead a team of dedicated administrators, talented teachers, and committed support staff who work together to create excellence in career and technical education.  

As you read through our webpages, I think you will agree that we have outstanding students! That doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by preparing carefully for the future, with everyone – students, parents, teachers, administrators, our Associate Schools, the school board and the community – working together toward one goal:  Making our students college, career, and life ready.

We are fortunate that we enjoy strong support from parents, alumni, our Associate Schools, business and industry, and other generous contributors and volunteers. These important partners for success help our district provide excellent career technical and academic programming that challenges our students to meet their full potential. I am excited about what we accomplish by working together, and I look forward to sharing those accomplishments with you in the following pages. I am confident the path we’re on is moving us in the right direction.

I encourage you to contact the people in our district who can help you the most. It is our job to assist you in any way we can, and we welcome the opportunity to do so. Your suggestions and observations will be very helpful for improving the CTC.  


Rick Smith, CTC Superintendent
