Ladue School Administrators Huddling Monday Over Superintendent Transition
The district announced Friday that Dr. Marsha Chappelow had been granted a leave of absence that would last the rest of her tenure.
The President and Vice President of the Ladue School district will meet with senior district administrators Monday morning to decide how to move forward in the wake of the board's decision late last week to grant Superintendent Dr. Marsha Chappelow a leave of absence, effective December 1 through the end of June and the remainder of her tenure with the district.
District spokeswoman Susan Dielmann said Monday's meeting would "discuss interim leadership plans, both short and long-term."
Chappelow announced earlier she would retire at the end of the current academic year and move to the Kansas City area to spend time with a new grandchild.
District spokeswoman Susan Dielmann told Patch Saturday that the decision on the early leave came as a "mutal agreement" by Dr. Chappelow and the board.
The district's announcement Friday said Dr. Chappelow would continue to be available to assist with any transition. Dielmann told Patch she expects to be in the area until April before the move to Kansas City.
Dielmann said Dr. Chappelow would not grant interview requests.
