Normandy (Mo.) district reverses course, agrees to pay costs of transfer students

Nov. 15, 2013
State law allows students from unaccredited districts to transfer to districts that are accredited

The Normandy (Mo.) School Board has reversed its earlier decision and has agreed to pay tuition to 17 accredited school districts where its students have transferred this fall. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the total bill is $1.37 million. The board had voted last month not to pay tuition and transportation costs to the other districts where students from Normandy, which has lost its accreditation, had transferred. Withholding the tuition had put the cash-strapped district at odds with state law.
