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 Future-Ready Schools projects resulting from Proposition L passing on April 6, 2021.
What is Prop L?
Prop L is a $126 million bond referendum that appeared on the April 6, 2021 ballot and was approved with 74.9% of voters in favor. With the $126 million in bonds raised by passing Prop L, the district will renovate its four K-4 elementary schools and Ladue Middle School with the goal of ensuring all schools in the district are future ready – both structurally and educationally. (Recent new construction and/or improvements at the Ladue Early Childhood Center, the Fifth Grade Center and Ladue Horton Watkins High School have already been completed.) With the passing of Proposition L, additional substantial construction projects are not anticipated to be necessary for the foreseeable future.
We hope you will take a few moments to roam around the site to learn more about the projects underway which are aimed at the following:
- Updating infrastructure at the four K-4 elementary schools and Ladue Middle School in order to decrease maintenance and utility costs – even when square footage is added.
- Enhancing safety features to keep students, staff and visitors safe from intruders, as well as to meet FEMA guidelines for withstanding severe weather events, such as tornadoes.
- Becoming fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) so all students, staff and visitors have equal access to our district facilities.
- Creating shared spaces (such as cafeterias, libraries, etc.) and classrooms that are right-sized for enrollment and support today’s best practices which include providing students with experiences in collaboration, small group work, and cross-discipline studies.
