St. Louis Area Parents Weigh School Transfers Suit

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis group that wants two school systems to accept more transfer students from unaccredited districts says it will decide by today whether to seek legal action in the case.

The group says both the Kirkwood and Mehlville school districts in St. Louis County have worked to help “identify a solution that is in the best interest of all kids” since being warned earlier this month of a possible lawsuit.

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