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.

    I hope they get the 40 acres and mule then 1 million dollars they have a right to it.

    Normandy is the epitome of entitlement.After wasting millions and millions for years, they lose accreditation.Then the state comes in save them. Then they want money to sue the state for more money.With reasoning like that, the only surprise was that Bye Bye wasn’t a board member.
