On Nov. 14, the Pattonville Board of Education reviewed the resignation of board members Dr. Amanda Lienau and Brandon Wilkes. Wilkes, treasurer of the board of education, resigned from the school board effective Oct. 18 due to moving outside of the district. Lisa Kickbusch was selected to replace Wilkes as treasurer. Lienau resigned from the board effective Oct. 25.
With candidate filing starting the first week of December, the board has decided not to fill Lienau or Wilkes’ seats on the board. Wilkes’ term was set to expire in April 2024. Lienau had two years left on her term. That two-year term will be open for filing during this year's election cycle. Filing for those interested in serving on the board will begin on Dec. 5. More details on filing are available here and are updated to provide information about the filling of Lienau’s term. Candidates may only file for the three- or the two-year term.
Candidates for the board must be at least 24 years of age, a United States citizen and a resident taxpayer of the district. Service on the board of education is a volunteer position, and board members do not receive any pay for their service.
