(KMOV.com) -- The Francis Howell School District has released numbers on how many students from unaccredited Normandy School District will attend school this fall.
Francis Howell said they will absorb 475 Normandy students. 168 of those students will be spread out among 10 elementary schools, 164 will attend 5 middle schools and 143 students will attend 3 high schools.
Parents showed up Saturday to register their students from Normandy to Francis Howell.
Francis Howell Superintendent Dr. Pam Sloan said the biggest challenge in adding the new students will be helping them get acclimated.
“Every building has their own plan, especially on the secondary level,” said Dr. Sloan, “On Tuesday we’ll have orientation day for our kids, sixth through twelfth, so any student who’s new, not only students who are transferring in from Normandy, but all of our new students, will have the opportunity to come in, get acquainted with their new school, see their schedule, learn about the expectations.”
With these incoming students, Francis Howell said they will have more than 17,000 students district wide compared to Normandy’s 4500.
