ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri says three parents are ready to file a lawsuit against the Mehlville School District if they do not change their current policy regarding transfer students before 3 p.m. today.
Mehlville School Board members met Wednesday night behind closed-doors for almost three hours.
School board members didn’t talk publicly about what happened in the emergency meeting, but Mehlville superintendent Eric Knost said previously that the district has accepted all the students it has the space for.
That would be 218 transferring students.
Outside the closed doors several parents wanted answers.
“Overloading the classrooms is really bring the quality of education down. That’s my whole issue on this,” said one parent.
“Why immediately file a lawsuit and get the NAACP involved when you could possibly send them to another district,” said another parent.
August 15th is the first day of school in the Mehlville district.
School starts August 12th for Riverview Gardens.
