Man dead after falling from high rise

Monday, 28 October 2013 01:11 Published in Local News

   St. Louis police say they don't suspect foul play in the death of a man who apparently fell from the top floor of west end high rise Saturday morning.  

   Police say a jogger found the man lying in front of The Dorchester apartment building in the 600 block of South Skinker about 9:00 a.m.  

   The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.  Investigators say his injuries were consistent with a long fall.

   The man's name has not yet been released.

   Parents in the Normandy School District plan to hold a town hall meeting Monday to discuss the financial and academic problems in the struggling district.  

   Last week the school board voted to cut more than 100 jobs, including 70 teachers and close Bel Nor Elementary School in an effort to keep from going bankrupt over of the costs of the state-mandated transfer program. The unaccredited district must pay for more than 1,000 students to attend schools in other districts.  

   But the School board voted last week not to pay the tuition and transportation bills associated with those transfers. 

   The Normandy Schools Town Hall Organization will host a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Natural Bridge Branch of the St. Louis County Library.

Normandy to cut more than 100 teachers

Thursday, 24 October 2013 04:43 Published in Local News

   Normandy Schools Superintendent Ty McNichols will outline proposed budget cuts at Thursday night's school board meeting.  But Wednesday, district officials briefed employees about the plan as the struggling district tries to cover transfer costs for hundreds of students.  

   Teachers learned yesterday that 103 of the district's 650 employees will lose their jobs by the end of December.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that layoff notices will go out next month.  

   District officials say class sizes could go as high as 29 students and Bel-Nor Elementary School is expected to close.

   The district is projecting a $6.8 million shortfall this school year because of the added cost of the state mandated school transfer program.
