Filing for positions on the Pattonville School District Board of Education begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and ends at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 27. 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 4, 2023, election ballot, each with a three-year term. Board members whose terms are expiring are Brian Gray as well as Lisa Kickbusch and Ruth Petrov who were appointed in 2022 to fill open positions. Their appointment lasts until the April election, but because both are filling terms that were set to expire in 2023, all open positions will be for a three-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. 27, filing will be open from noon 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. 23 through Dec. 26.
