St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Although it might surprise a few people, there’s some public schools in the city of St. Louis that are doing pretty well.
US News and World Report have rated Metro Academic and Classical High School as the top high school in Missouri. Mayor Slay’s Chief of Staff Jeff Rainford says not only is Metro doing well, but they’ve doubled the number of quality educational opportunities for parents in St. Louis over the past four or five years and believes if they keep doing that, not only will you see a turn around in the lives of children, but you’re also going to see a major turn around for the city itself.
US News also ranks Metro as the 135th best high school in the country.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has released $1 million in state funding to help rebuild a northeast Missouri vocational school destroyed by fire.
Lawmakers included funding for the Pike-Lincoln Technical Center in the current year's budget, but Nixon vetoed the appropriation.
The Legislature overrode the veto in September. But Nixon then froze the spending while determining if there was enough money in a particular fund to pay for it and whether the fund could legally be used for the project.
Nixon's budget director said Monday that the $1 million for the school had been released last week.
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.
North Dakota - AP - A school superintendent in North Dakota will resign after he says he took a gun to school to protect himself.
Tioga Superintendent D'Wayne Johnston said in an interview Wednesday that he brought the weapon to the high school on Oct. 2 because of a threat from a boy that resulted in the student's expulsion. Johnston says he should have instead asked for more help from police.
Johnston refused to go into detail about the threat but says the boy had previous discipline problems.
After several people saw the gun, Johnston acknowledged carrying it.
The school board accepted Johnston's resignation at an emergency meeting Friday. The resignation takes effect at the end of the school year.
District officials don't think the incident will result in any criminal charges against Johnston.
ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) - Police in central Missouri say a teenager shot and killed himself as he was being taken into custody for allegedly sending a text threatening school violence.
The shooting happened around 2 a.m. Tuesday near Ashland. The name of the 17-year-old student has not been released.
Boone County Maj. Tom Reddin says the teen sent a text to another student Monday night saying something dramatic was going to happen at school Tuesday, something that would include loss of life.
The family of the teen who received the text contacted police. Reddin says that as officers went to take in the teen who sent the message, he asked to get dressed.
Reddin says that's when the teen went into the home, retrieved a handgun and shot himself in the chest.
