JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A St. Louis County school system is dropping a lawsuit over a Missouri law that requires unaccredited school districts to pay for the transfers of students who request them.
The Normandy School District said Friday its lawsuit was intended to address tuition payments, local control for the district and accreditation status. Normandy says the aims were achieved this week by decisions approved by the State Board of Education.
Missouri education officials are dissolving Normandy on June 30 and replacing it with the Normandy Schools Collaborative overseen by the state. State education board members on Monday approved a new tuition calculation that will reduce payments for existing transfer students and classified the district so that it will not be required to pay for new student transfers.
