St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Officials with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, or DESE are due to make recommendations on how to improve failing school districts today. Officials have been examining six proposals.
One plan continues the current system of allowing students to transfer out of failing districts with the district footing the bill. Another proposal would allow students to transfer to better schools inside their own district. And yet another plan would eliminate failing districts and allow them to become independent.
It may not feel like it quite yet, but campers and boaters planning ahead may need to know the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is considering closing another campsite on Table Rock Lake.
The corps announced Monday that the Viney Creek Recreation Area near Golden, Mo. is the targeted site. Lake manager Greg Oller says federal funding for Table Rock was reduced $600,000 this year. The rec area faces a problem in that it doesn't have a commercial marina. Viney Creek does offer campsites, a playground area and swimming area.
Oller says boaters will have seven other nearby public areas to use to gain access to Table Rock Lake.
