As parents in the Hazelwood School District are left wondering why Superintendent Steve Price was replaced last week, one mom has published her opinions about and experiences with Price on her Patch Local Voices blog.
When she had concerns with her son’s elementary school, blogger and mom-of-four Jeannine, whose son has a neurological disorder, said she went straight to Price for help, as well as the school board and assistant superintendents.
“None of them returned calls to address concerns, made changes, or got involved to see if indeed things were as bad as I said. It was,” she writes in her recent post. “The U.S. Department of Civil Rights helped me get their attention.”
Find out how Jeannine finally solved her problem and learn what she thinks needs to happen next in the district. Plus, find out about JordansAdvocate.com, the advocacy program and website she started in her son’s name.

Jeannine isn’t the only district parent who has voiced opinions on this potentially controversial topic. On Hazelwood Patch’s Facebook page, several parents chimed in.
“Why the sudden change?” posted Matt Thompson. “As a parent in the district, I’m very interested.”
Laurie Tenshler agreed, noting that “they don’t just do stuff like that for no reason.”
Tina Schreck posted that she, too, was curious as to why price had been replaced.
“At least they made a decent choice for replacements,” Shreck added.
