School Districts Will Accept Student Transfers

St. Louis area schools are preparing to accept student transfers from the unaccredited school districts of Riverview Gardens and Normandy. The transfers are now required due to a ruling handed down last week by the Missouri Supreme Court. In that ruling the court said students in unaccredited districts have the right under a state law to transfer to better public schools. The Parkway, Webster Grove and Pattonville districts all indicate they are prepared to receive new transfer students. The transfers are creating various logistical challenges that districts are trying to address this summer. The court ruling will also affect the Kansas City area because the Kansas City school district is unaccredited.
