History[edit]

On June 7, 1975, a U.S. district court ordered FFSD to annex the Berkeley School District and the Kinloch School District; therefore the Ferguson-Florissant district began to serve Berkeley and Kinloch.[1]

In 2004, Berkeley High School closed, replaced by McCluer South-Berkeley High School[1]

On December 8, 2010, the Board of Education named Dr. Art J. McCoy, II as Superintendent. He is the first African-American superintendent for the school district and at age 33 is one of the youngest in the state of Missouri and nation.[2]
