Filing for positions on the Pattonville School District Board of Education begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, and ends at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 26. Persons interested in running for a position on the school board may file at the Pattonville Learning Center, 11097 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann, Missouri. Candidates will be placed on the ballot in order of filing. There are three positions available on the April 2, 2024, election ballot, two with a three-year term and one with a two-year term. Board vice president Jeanne Schottmueller’s term is expiring. Both Dr. Amanda Lienau and Brandon Wilkes resigned from the board in October. Because Wilkes’ term was set to expire in April, his seat will be filled with the standard three-year term. Lienau, who was elected in April, had two years left in her term, creating the two-year opening. Candidates may only file for the three- or the two-year term.
Candidates may file during the district’s regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. On Dec. 26, filing will be open from 2 p.m. until filing closes at 5 p.m. Hours are subject to change. Except for the first and last day of filing, filing will not occur on days that the school district’s central offices are closed due to inclement weather or other unforeseeable reasons. The district may not open on the first and/or last day of filing if weather conditions make it unsafe for school staff to travel. Filing will also not occur on the following dates when the district’s superintendent’s office will be closed: Dec. 25.
