In a closed session, the Feb. 7, the school board finalized it’s decision and made a formal recommendation and then spent time waiting for contracts and paperwork to be filed by Swanger’s successor. However, Sunshine laws require that any private meeting held by public servants’ information must be disclosed to the within 72 hours.

The school board has voted and unanimously selected Jason Landherr as Mehlville High School’s new principal starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

His ability to collaborate with others and empower teachers to engage in innovative teaching practices is impressive. Throughout his time as an assistant principal, he has demonstrated his ability to develop positive relationships with students and parents, and he has built a reputation as a passionate educational leader with a strong work ethic.”
