Former members of the Lindbergh Board of Education recently gathered to meet with district administrators and current board members, and learn about issues that are affecting the district at this time.

Superintendent Jim Simpson gave former board members an overview of several changes that are coming in the 2017-2018 school year, including the opening of a sixth elementary school, the construction of a new Central Office to free up classrooms at Lindbergh High School and a forthcoming superintendent search, according to a news release.

Earlier this year, Simpson announced his retirement, effective July 2018.

“We value all of our current and former Board of Education members, and appreciate the countless volunteer hours they give to make a positive impact in the lives of Lindbergh children,” Simpson stated in the release. “This meeting is an opportunity to share information and gain insight from individuals who are leaders in our community.”

Ten former directors of the Lindbergh Schools Board of Education gathered Thursday to meet with district administrators and current board members, and learn about issues that are affecting the district at this time.

“This annual luncheon is a valuable opportunity for board members past and present to share their wisdom with one another and focus on what is best for Lindbergh students,” Superintendent Jim Simpson stated in a news release. “We are fortunate to have a history of board members who collaborate well and have a common goal of providing the best education to the children in our community.”

During the luncheon, administrators shared information with the former board members about the district’s growing enrollment, especially at the elementary school level. Lindbergh expects to add 464 new resident students in the next five years — enough to fill an additional school building.

Simpson was also pleased to announce that Lindbergh Schools ranks No. 1 in student achievement among Missouri K-12 districts in 2013, for the fourth consecutive year, according to the release.
