JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri education officials have voted to limit student transfers out of an unaccredited St. Louis County district.
The State Board of Education on Monday approved policies barring students who remained in the Normandy School District this academic year from transferring in the future to nearby districts.
In addition, students who transferred during the latest school year would have to return to Normandy if they did not spent at least one semester there in the previous year.
The decisions came during a meeting on details of the district’s future. The state board voted in May to dissolve the Normandy district at the end of June and replace it with the new Normandy Schools Collaborative.
Missouri law allows students to transfer from unaccredited districts to nearby districts.
