ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Top officials from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education met with school district officials from Riverview Gardens and Normandy Wednesday to review six proposed plans for helping the failing districts.

Some of the plans call for continuing to allow students in an unaccredited district to transfer to other districts or to transfer to better performing schools within their own district.

DESE officials plan to make a final recommendation on the six proposed plans to the state board of education on February 18th.
