A judge in Jefferson City has ruled on a request from the former administration of St. Louis County’s troubled Wellston School District that the newly appointed Special Administrative Board be prevented from assuming responsibilities. Attorney Chuck Ford, who represents the former administration, says the ruling is short and to the point. In essence, the request for a temporary restraining order is denied, but a request for an evidentiary hearing on an injunction request had been granted. It is scheduled for next Thursday morning in a Cole County courtroom. What this means is that while the State-appointed three-member Board takes over control of the District, members of the administration that was dissolved will be allowed to present their case in court next week. It’s a case in which the plaintiffs will claim the reasons used by the State Board of Education to dissolve the old Wellston District are not factual.
