NORMANDY, MO (KTVI)-The state of Missouri officially took over the troubled Normandy School District Tuesday. The first order of business was to swear in the five members of the state appointed board to operate the Normandy Schools Collaborative. Then they heard from state education officials about the transition to state control. They went over governing policies, fiscal management and school administration.

State education officials told the board members that they face an extraordinary and difficult assignment in turning around the unaccredited Normandy schools. One board member said their mantra should be how to offer incentives for children to learn.

    My question is,didn’t the other teachers give the children an incentives? Or was it just a baby setting job? I’m giving 3 to 2 they will fail. again

    Ummm….am I the only person seeing huge red flags here that the STATE has took over the school and APPOINTED board members? So, to whom are the board members accountable? Not the parents who should have been the ones to ELECT them! They should have had a special election! Not good…not good at all. At the very least, there should have been PARENTS placed right alongside the ‘appointed’ school board members! Sometimes the idiocy of government bureaucracy STILL manages to surprise me. Moreover, the lack of outcry from the parents & taxpayers in that district is appalling!
