NORMANDY, MO (KTVI)-- Students of what could be the last graduating class at Normandy High School as it currently exists received their diplomas Thursday night.
Lawmakers just passed a new law saying students could still transfer from an unaccredited district and that the un-achieving district will still have to pick up the tab for tuition and transportation to the new school.
At the same time the state board has voted to dissolve the district. Teachers will have to reapply for their jobs and the elected school board will no longer be in charge of what's called the Normandy schools collaborative.
A lawsuit filed by the district Wednesday seeks to have the existing transfer law thrown out, and to stop the state takeover slated to take effect July 1st.
