Future Uncertain for Normandy School District
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - On June 30, the Normandy School District disappears.
On July 1, a state-operated entity takes over, hiring teachers and other staff from scratch.
“They’re coming in saying that they have a better way to do it, and at this point we just need to wait and see what happens,” says school board president William Humphrey.
He says he’d like to see teachers get some certainty as to whether they have a job, how much they’ll be paid, and where they’re working.
He also wants to know what the new district will do differently than the old, because nothing’s been done to remedy the transfer scramble situation.
“The children that this new government structure is coming into will be the same transient population, it will be the same economic stratus that we’ve seen before,” Humphrey says.
