North County Parents Table School Transfers Suit

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A St. Louis group that pressured two school systems to accept more transfer students from unaccredited districts says it no longer plans to seek legal action in the case.

The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri said Thursday that the five families mulling a suit against the Mehlville district have received suitable school assignments. The group previously indicated that fewer than 100 families hoping to transfer from the Riverview Gardens district to either Kirkwood or Mehlville schools were still having problems.

Both districts cited class size limits in turning away students from Riverview Gardens, one of two St. Louis County school systems whose students can now go elsewhere after the state Supreme Court upheld such moves in a June ruling.
