   School starts in Kirkwood on August 20th and Tuesday night parents in the south county district learned how their schools will be affected by the transfer of more than 150 students from Normandy and Riverview Gardens.  

   Kirkwood School Board spokesperson Ginger Cayce says class sizes may fluctuate slightly, but not enough to cause concern.  Cayce says the $12,000 per transfer student that the district will receive will cover the cost of any extra resources needed.  Cayce says the money would be spent on "technology, support staff resources, and any additional teachers or teachers aides we might need in the classroom."

   About 650 people attended Tuesday night's meeting at Kirkwood High.  There were questions about test scores and athletic opportunities, but most showed support for the students coming from the unaccredited districts.  One man even donated money to help cover "incidental costs" for transfer students.  He called on others with the means to do so as well.
