KIPP to open elementary in empty St. Louis school

Six years after refusing to sell vacant buildings to charter schools, leaders of St. Louis Public Schools have approved a partnership that would give the charter school organization KIPP St. Louis access to an empty elementary building at no cost. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Special Administrative Board has okayed an agreement that turns over the former Mitchell School to KIPP for an elementary school slated to open in fall 2014.
