The Ferguson-Florissant School District Board of Education last week introduced Dr. Joseph Davis as the new superintendent, effective July 1.
The board unanimously approved Davis’ appointment on Jan. 30 and directed the negotiation of his contract. The contract, signed on Feb. 6 and ratified by the Board on Feb. 10, will run July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2018. Davis will receive an initial annual salary of $200,000.
More than 750 members of the community spent a recent sunny Saturday talking to university representatives about summer engineering programs, getting their hands sticky in slime, and learning how a 3D printer works, among other things.
Approval Would Fund Infrastructure Upgrades
The Ferguson-Florissant School District has announced it will seek a no tax increase $31 million bond issue, Proposition I, in the upcoming April 7 election.
If approved, Proposition I would fund upgrades to the district’s infrastructure including security improvements, building repairs and renovations. A district spokesperson said the bond issue would also upgrade classroom technology to help the district deliver innovative instruction and learning opportunities that prepare students for 21st century careers. This would include conversion of a district school into a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Learning Center.
