Elementary Facilities Update: Architects from HTK and project managers from Navigate Building Solutions provided an update on the elementary facilities project, including tentative building design plans for McGrath Elementary. Over the past several months, staff, parent, and community representatives have been working with the architects in order to help with the design process. In the coming weeks, the community will have opportunities to provide their feedback and ask questions about the process. We will share dates and information with you as soon as they are available.

April 6th Election: In April 2021 the terms of two Brentwood School District Board of Education Directors will expire.
The new three-year terms will run from April 2021 – April 2024.
Two candidates filed to run for the two Director positions. In order of filing, the candidates are:

  • Theresa Kouo for Director
  • James D. (Jamie) Allen, III for Director (Incumbent)

In accordance with Missouri statutes and Brentwood School District policy BBB-1, the number of candidates who filed is equal to the number of positions to be filled, therefore no election is needed.
The Board of Education reorganization meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Center at 1201 Hanley Industrial Court. Ms. Kouo and Mr. Allen will be sworn in and will begin serving the new term at that meeting.
