Thank you for visiting Ladue School District’s Future-Ready Schools website! This site has been developed and will be continually updated in order to provide the Ladue Schools community with up-to-date, accurate information about the district’s processes for determining whether and when to ask taxpayers for support in addressing facility issues that have been identified at the district’s four K-4 elementary schools and Ladue Middle School.
We hope you will take a few moments to roam around the site and learn more about these proposed projects which, if completed, would make all Ladue School District school future ready and eliminate the need for the district to ask taxpayers for any additional funding for facilities for many years to come.
As you will see in the Research section of this website, the district recently completed phone and online surveys to gauge patron support for these projects. These results were presented at the Nov. 23, 2020 Board of Education meeting and will be a key component in the Board’s determination on how to move forward with these projects
