10/11/2017 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Who should run St. Louis schools? Appointed and elected school boards trying to figure that out

The SAB is holding the first of 4 meetings by a special task force it is rushing into being to study alternative forms of governance for the SLPS. Each meeting will be on a different form of governance, elected boards, appointed boards and hybrid boards which are part appointed and part elected.

It is part of an expedited process the SAB has cooked up to study alternative forms of governance for the SLPS. It will result in the SAB sending a recommendation to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on the future of governance for the SLPS.

This will happen before the end of December so that if any legislation has to be submitted to the Missouri General Assembly, changing how our school board is chosen, DESE will have the time to do so for the 2018 session.

Experts from the Missouri School Boards Association will present information about elected boards to a special task force that the SAB is forming to evaluate the information provided and ask questions of the experts. SAB Member Gaines said the public will also be able to ask questions. There will be opportunities for the public to make their opinions known via the SLPS website and other means.

Subsequent meetings on appointed boards and hybrid boards will be…
