Hi! I know you're on Wikibreak but I'm leaving this message for when you get back.
In regards to your change of the St. Charles School District disambiguation page to a singular redirect (due to most of the pages being redlinks), I have reversed this. This is a problematic edit because people looking for other school districts with the same name will be taken to the wrong place (if they are not looking for the Louisiana school district) and have no recourse/way of finding the proper place, nor will they have a way of starting a new article.
Please don't overestimate the average public's knowledge of Wikipedia - many, especially older adults, are not familiar with how to change pages or how to start them. We need to make it as easy as possible to start new articles. This is why, in many or some cases, disambiguation pages with a single blue link should be left as is.
