Normandy Superintendent unveils path to accreditation

Monday, 23 September 2013 15:30 Published in Local News

The Superintendent of Normandy Schools unveiled his plan to take the district back to accreditation.

Ty McNichols held a forum Monday to correct any misinformation about the district and lay out the 100-day plan. McNichols' plan focuses on improving graduation rates and attendance. The largest immediate obstacle for the district a huge financial shortfall. Normandy has to cover the costs for 1,000 students who transferred. That equates to a $15 million bill. McNichols says nothing is off the table to balance the budget, including staffing cuts and class consolidations.

Parents are invited to a second forum, Tuesday night at 6 PM, at the Indian Trails Library.

Police selling anti-theft devices at a discount

Monday, 23 September 2013 15:28 Published in Local News

St. Louis Police are giving vehicle owners a chance to keep their cars safe on the cheap.

They’re selling auto clubs for just $13, license plate covers for $5, and license plate fasteners for just $3. The sale is from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Central West End at the NSI office on North Euclid and all transactions are cash only.

JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) - It wasn't long ago that the Jennings School District in north St. Louis County was on the verge of losing accreditation, just like the neighboring Normandy and Riverview Gardens districts did. Instead, Jennings is now in the midst of a turnaround.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that parents are more involved, attendance is up, test scores are rising and discipline problems are declining in Jennings.

Many credit superintendent Tiffany Anderson, who has gotten rid of underperforming teachers and principals and hired about 30 new teachers. She also reduced central office staff to free up money for classrooms and extended the school year for students in an accelerated middle school program.
