   The Mehlville school district won't hire more teacher or enlarge class sizes in order to accommodate students transferring in from the unaccredited Riverview Gardens School District.  

   The Mehlville school board supported their superintendent's position and set class size limits Thursday night.  That will allow the district to accept only 150 of the roughly 450 students who've applied to transfer.  

   A lottery will be held August 2nd to determine which students can make the switch from Riverview Gardens to Mehlville.  

   More than 200 parents attended last night's school board meeting at Mehlville High School.  Many expressed concerns about the cost of busing and the number of hours students will spend in transit.  Others were concerned that the transfer students will put a drain on the Mehlville district.

   Mehlville Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost has said that maintaining the district's small class sizes is key to maintaining educational excellence.
