School Board Governance
Last year, the Saint Louis Public School District regained full accreditation! The appointed Special Administrative Board has been governing our district. But now with full accreditation, the SAB gets to recommend our future governance structure.
Richard K. Gaines, a member of the Special Administrative Board, is the chair of a special committee to explore future governance models for Saint Louis Public Schools. Three public meetings* were held for the committee and public to learn about three governance models. Feedback was taken during the meetings and over a two-week period following the conclusion of the meetings.
Public Meeting 1: Elected Board Governance
Monday, November 6th, 2017 at 6:30 pm at Vashon High School
Public Meeting 2: Appointed Board Governance

Public Meeting 3: Hybrid Board Governance
