Districts in St. Louis area willing to take transfers from failing districts

The St. Louis area has two unaccredited school districts--Normandy and Riverview Gardens. Last week, the Missouri Supreme Court, reversing a lower court ruling, upheld a law that allows students in those unaccredited districts to transfer to more successful school systems. Now, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, superintendents from St. Louis-area districts say they will abide by the court ruling and begin accepting transfer students. A statement from 50 area superintendents says their districts will try to accommodate transfers in a way that is in "the best interests of all children and families."
