LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri says that they will not file a lawsuit against the Mehlville school District.  A statement released by the group says that they believe additional time to work out the transfer process will be beneficial to parents, students, and school districts.

The group is upset that spots for all Riverview Gardens students requesting a transfer with have not been found at Mehlville or Kirkwood schools.  The deadline was August 1st but the group now says,  “We believe that school officials are working in good faith to find a resolution.”

Superintendent, Dr. Eric D. Knost says that Mehlville has not agreed to take the remaining number of transfer students. But, they are still working on a resolution with all districts involved.  The district met in a closed door meeting with their Board of Education on Wednesday night to determine how to proceed.
