School transfer bill comes with large price tag

Jefferson City, MO (KTRS) – A bill to overhaul Missouri’s school transfer law could come a large cost.

A bill being debated in the state Senate would cost more than $200 million a year to implement. The bill would allow students in struggling schools more options to transfer to better-performing schools in the same district. The most expensive portions of the bill are requirements that students perform dyslexia screening in St. Louis County schools and to hold back students if they score poorly in English and math.

The House passed a bill without the expensive testing restrictions that would cost around $13.5 million a year. The expensive provisions in the Senate bill threaten its chances of passing.
