Mehlville School District is a destination district

Letters to the Editor


There have been many calls over the past decade for the Mehlville School District to be a “destination district” — a place where families seek to raise their children. The passage of Prop R to restore budgetary cuts and the passage of Prop S (both of which passed with overwhelming community support) strengthened the ability of the district to provide that place for families and thereby strengthened our community.

Prop E now offers the chance for Mehlville to be a destination district for a dedicated workforce. With labor shortages both locally and nationally, Mehlville needs the ability to attract and retain the highest quality custodians, grounds crew, cooks, bus drivers, secretaries, and teachers. An investment in a talented workforce is an investment in the talents of our children. I’m voting yes for Prop E.
