COLUMBUS—State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) applauded Springmill STEM Elementary School for its recent STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) designation, effective next school year. Springmill is part of the Mansfield City School District and the first in Richland County to receive this designation.


“Many of the job openings going unfilled in Richland County are STEM related,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “Having a STEM school in our backyard will be beneficial to our business community and for individuals looking for high-paying careers.”



STEM schools equip students to succeed by means of a curriculum centered around rigorous inquiry, design, innovation, and teamwork. Advanced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are integrated, as are the arts and humanities. Partnerships with businesses and institutions of higher education provide a wider scope of opportunity and learning.


As approved by Ohio’s STEM Committee, Springmill joined 11 other schools throughout Ohio to obtain STEM designation this year. In total, there are 42 schools in the state with this recognition.
