Missouri State Board of Education
Councilman Steve Stenger notes that the Children’s Service Fund has more than $75 million unallocated funds available.
The Missouri State Board of Education is preparing to weigh the future for St. Louis County’s unaccredited Normandy school district.
Legislation addressing vacancies on the Missouri State Board of Education is awaiting action by Gov. Jay Nixon.
Normandy is projected to run out of money in March. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and the Missouri Legislature must approve the education budget.
Gov. Jay Nixon announced Friday he accepted the Rev. Stan Archie’s resignation. Nixon says the board needs “to have a clear focus without distraction from its mission.”
The Missouri State Board of Education heard a report Tuesday about the shutdown of six schools run by Virginia-based Imagine Schools Inc.
Under Tuesday’s decision from the Missouri State Board of Education, the Normandy School District’s loss of accreditation takes effect Jan. 1.
Currently, charter schools are allowed in only St. Louis city and Kansas City.
