JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri education officials say it's in the best interest of students transferring from unaccredited to accredited school districts to do so at the beginning of the school year.

But the Missouri Department of Education said in its latest guidance to schools that if there are extenuating circumstances, receiving districts should consider transfers at the semester based on available room.

Two unaccredited St. Louis County districts are now subject to the transfer law. Figures reported at the start of the school year indicate 1,451 transferred from Riverview Gardens and 1,189 students left Normandy.

So far, no transfers are happening in Kansas City because of a pending court case. After faring well on a school performance report, the Kansas City district is seeking to regain accreditation before it's subject to the law.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon's administration is working on a proposal that could allow national parks to reopen in Missouri with help from the state.

Nixon said Friday that Missouri's proposal would specifically include plans to reopen the Gateway Arch grounds in St. Louis and the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Park in southern Missouri.

He described the parks as "national treasures" that draw millions of visitors and "generate significant economic activity" for Missouri.

National parks have been closed because of the federal budget stalemate in Washington that has resulted in a partial government shutdown.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama's administration said it would allow parks to reopen if states are willing to pay the costs.

Utah and Colorado already have struck deals to re-open some of the national parks.

No. 25 Missouri (5-0, 1-0 SEC) at No. 7 Georgia (4-1, 3-0 SEC), 11am (KTRS)

Line: Georgia by 9

Series Record: Georgia leads 2-0

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Georgia lost wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley and tailback Keith Marshall to season-ending knee injuries in last week's 44-41 overtime win at Tennessee and could be without tailback Todd Gurley (ankle) for a second straight week. Undefeated Missouri is trying to validate a strong start after last week's 51-28 win at Vanderbilt.

KEY MATCHUP

Missouri QB James Franklin vs. Georgia secondary. Franklin, a senior, threw four TD passes against Vanderbilt, giving him 13 for the season with only three interceptions. Georgia, which ranks 12th in the SEC in pass defense, likely will start two freshmen defensive backs, free safety Tray Matthews and cornerback Shaq Wiggins.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Georgia: RB J.J. Green. After Marshall left last week's game in the first half, Green took the lead role in the running game. The freshman had 17 carries for 129 yards, showing for the first time his potential to be more than a complement to Gurley and Marshall.

Missouri: DE Michael Sam. The senior has recorded three sacks in back-to-back games against Arkansas State and Vanderbilt. He has 10 tackles for losses and has forced a fumble.
