Normandy School District officials will meet with parents Tuesday to answer their questions after announcing that the unaccredited district will pay to bus students to schools in the Francis Howell District in St. Charles beginning this fall.
The announcement comes on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling allowing students attending unaccredited districts to transfer to high performing schools.
All Normandy students in grades K-12 can participate in the transfer program at the district's expense. Parents can begin the transfer process July 9th at Normandy School District headquarters.
Tuesday's meeting with parents begins at 3 p.m. at the Normandy District offices.
Detectives with the St. Louis Major Case Squad are looking for a suspect in the execution-style death of a Normandy man.
Police say 30 year old Markquette Nunn had been using a weed trimmer in the front yard of his home in the 7600 block of Bermuda Court about 12:45Wednesday afternoon when someone shot him in the back of the head.
A neighbor heard the shot and came outside just in time to see a man running from the scene. Nunn was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say Nunn shared the home with his girlfriend and their baby son, who were not home at the time of the shooting. A friend who also lived in the home was inside when Nunn was shot. He told police he heard the shot, then look outside to see Nunn collapsed in the yard.
Police say they have very little to go in so far. Anyone with information is urged to call the Major Case Squad – via Normandy Police at 314-385-3300, ext. 3018.
