NORMANDY, MO (KTVI)-- Normandy School District officials have decided to bus students to St. Charles this fall to attend Francis Howell Schools.
The Normandy School Board was made aware of the decision last Thursday. Francis Howell administrators received word the following day.
The decision comes on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling, which makes it possible for students attending unaccredited districts to transfer to high performing schools.
All Normandy students in grades K-12 can participate in the transfer program at the district's expense.
That comes as good news to parents determined to leave the struggling district.
Francis Howell School District Superintendent, Dr. Pam Sloan released a statement saying:
“It is understandable that someone looking for a good school district for their children would pick Francis Howell. We welcome those students and ensure that all students will receive the best education possible.”
Normandy parents can start the transfer process July 9th at Normandy School District headquarters.
A special meeting is being held there Tuesday afternoon at 3 to answer their questions.
