Monday, 14 October 2013 03:01 Published in Local News

   Most of the students who were given the chance to transfer out of the struggling Normandy and Riverview Gardens school districts are still attending their new schools.  

   Nearly 2300 transfer students were attending classes in 24 districts across the St. Louis metro area, according to numbers compiled by Cooperating School Districts of Greater St. Louis last month.  

   About 500 students who could have transferred, opted to stay in their home districts.  Don Senti, executive director of Cooperating School Districts told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that transportation is a problem.  Senti says it's too difficult for some students to get to school in districts where transportation isn't provided.
