It has no official standing, but it still meets on a regular basis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the elected St. Louis School Board is still meeting, every month, gathering inside the mirrored dance room at the Carr Lane Middle School, following parliamentary procedure. They can discuss issues. They cannot act. The state replaced the local board with a three-member appointed board in 2007 when the State Board of Education stripped accreditation from the St. Louis School District.

The term of the appointed board is set to expire next year. The elected board is hoping to make the transition into power. Board members even met with State Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro to discuss their concerns about the district and its future.
