COTTLEVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Leaders of the St. Charles County’s Francis Howell School District plan a public meeting next week to discuss the transfer of students from the Normandy School District to Francis Howell schools.

The unaccredited Normandy School District in St. Louis County has decided to pay to send its students who want to transfer to Francis Howell schools.

The Missouri Supreme Court recently upheld a state law requiring unaccredited districts to pay for students who want to attend schools in higher performing districts in the same or adjacent districts. The unaccredited school systems must foot tuition bills and pay for transportation to at least one school district.

The public meeting will be at 6 p.m. July 11 at the Francis Howell Central High School gym.
