Voters Approve $126 Million Bond Referendum and Elect Rosen and Soshnik to Board of Education

On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, voters in the Ladue School District passed Proposition L: a $126 million bond referendum aimed at making improvements to the district’s four K-4 elementary schools and Ladue Middle School. In addition, voters selected Marissa Rosen and Jennifer Growe Soshnik to the two open seats on the district’s Board of Education.

With 74.9% of voters in favor of the proposition, the district is prepared to begin construction this summer after the end of the 2020-21 school year. “We are so grateful for the community’s continued support of our district and our students,” said Superintendent Dr. Jim Wipke. “By completing these projects, all of our schools will be what we call “future ready,” and we do not anticipate having to make any additional requests of our taxpayers for many years to come.”

Marissa Rosen and Jennifer Growe Soshnik will be sworn in for three-year terms to the Board of Education at the April 12, 2021 meeting. Also at that meeting, the district will wish farewell to Sheri Glantz and Nancy Goldstein who have served on the Board of Education for 14 and 9 years, respectively, and did not run for reelection. “Board membership is demanding and important work that is integral to maintaining the continued success of our district,” said Wipke. “We are so grateful for Sheri and Nancy’s dedicated service and look forward to welcoming Marissa and Jennifer to our district’s top leadership positions.
