Superintendent Dr. Donna Jahnke has announced she will retire effective June 30, 2019. At the time of her retirement, she will have served in education a total of 36 years, 32 of those in the Ladue School District.
Dr. Jahnke, the Board of Education, and the district’s administrative team have outlined a plan to ensure a smooth transition over the next sixteen months. The search for the next superintendent will begin this summer with the selection of an executive search firm and, once that process is complete, there will be opportunities for the community, staff and parents to provide input. Ideally, Dr. Jahnke and the next superintendent will have the opportunity to work side by side prior to her last official day on the job.
