The Pattonville Board of Education on June 14 approved a $105 million operating budget for the 2022-2023 school year. The district will likely have a net deficit of about $1.6 million, which is common in non-reassessment years. However, the deficit is largely due to lower commercial property assessments during the last county wide property assessment.
Andrea Glenn, director of the Pattonville Board of Education, announced she is resigning from the school board, effective June 15, due to a relocation to Kansas. The board of education will begin accepting applications later this month from individuals interested in filling her position and remaining term.
