SSD to Hold Special Board of Education Election for Subdistrict 1

  • The Governing Council will hold a special election for the open Board of Education seat in Subdistrict 1, which represents Hazelwood, Maplewood-Richmond Heights, and Jennings school districts. The Governing Council, which elects the Special School District (SSD) Board of Education, was not able to elect a candidate for Subdistrict 1 at the March 6 meeting and declared an impasse due to lack of a quorum. According to bylaws, the Governing Council must hold a new election for the open seat at the next scheduled Governing Council meeting. 

    Candidate filing was open from April 3, 2023, through April 28, 2023. Three candidates submitted applications and will be voted upon during the Governing Council meeting on June 5, 2023: Stephanie Boykin, Curtis Faulkner (incumbent), and Carmen A. Stayton.
