Judge rules in favor of Normandy parents
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis County Circuit Court judge has ruled in favor of parents who want their children to be able to permanently transfer from an unaccredited eastern Missouri school district.
Judge Michael Burton ruled Friday that the Pattonville, Ritenour and Francis Howell school districts must immediately allow the children of four families in the Normandy school district to return to their schools. The parents sued the three school districts and the state after the districts refused to re-enroll their children for this school year.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the ruling could allow 500 Normandy students to return to schools that refused to re-enroll them this school year.
