UCity School Board Will Reconsider Transfer Plan

UNIVERSITY CITY, MO  –  The University City School Board will hold a work session to reconsider its decision to turn away transfer students from the unaccredited Normandy School District.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that more than 70 residents, parents and teachers voiced mixed emotions Monday on whether Normandy students should be allowed to return.

The board voted on June 26 to send transfer students back to Normandy, which is now under state control. The University City district became the second in the region to do so, following Francis Howell. Other districts have followed in the weeks since.

Some residents told the University City board Monday that keeping the transfer students would ruin the districts accreditation. Others said turning them away defies the city’s history of inclusion.
