The new innovative elementary school in the Mehlville School District, previously referred to as the Choice School of Innovation, now has an official name.  

On Thursday, March 9,  the Board of Education approved the name MOSAIC for the new school.  MOSAIC is an acronym for Mehlville-Oakville Students Achieve, Imagine, Create.  There were 554 applications for the 250 student slots at MOSAIC.  The lottery is now complete and letters will be sent out soon to parents whose students were selected to attend MOSAIC. The school will open in August of 2017.

MOSAIC Elementary will use what is currently the St. John school building that houses several alternative educational programs.  The building is located across the street from the Mehlville High campus on Will Avenue. Dr. Scott Clark, currently the principal at Forder Elementary, will be the new principal at MOSAIC. 

For the first year, the CSOI will have grades Kindergarten through 4th grade.  For the 2018-19 school year it will add 5th grade classes.


 

 

 

The proposed Choice School Of Innovation (CSOI) continues to take shape, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Scott Clark and his CSOI committee which consists of District staff members and parents.  The creation of a new elementary school is a complicated process with many interconnected parts, from curriculum to staffing to enrollment to transportation to food service to funding and much more. Putting all these different pieces together is both exciting and challenging.

Dr. Clark and District administrators continue to get lots of questions and feedback from the community, which are important parts of the school creation process.  Many details are still evolving and will continue to evolve right up until the time the Board of Education considers and votes on the plan at its January 18th meeting.  To answer some of those questions and to update the community on the work being done, the CSOI committee has prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).  We encourage everyone to read the attached document so they have a better understanding about the proposed school and how it will benefit the children of the Mehlville School District.
