Mr. Mahan, 57, a graduate of the St. Louis public schools, succeeds Jerome B. Jones, who resigned his position in June 1990. Mr. Mahan had been the district's assistant superintendent for middle schools before being named interim superintendent.

After conducting two national searches, the St. Louis board voted 7 to 5 to offer a four-year contract to Mr. Mahan, according to a district spokesman. He will be paid approximately $125,000 annually.
