NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) - The Normandy School District in St. Louis County is changing course and will pay transportation costs for students who transferred away from the unaccredited district.
But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Normandy is still refusing to pay tuition costs.
A Missouri Supreme Court ruling requires unaccredited districts to pay transportation and tuition costs for students who transfer to better-performing districts. Normandy board members voted last week not to pay.
In a special meeting Thursday, the board agreed to pay $108,000 to the bus contractor hired to bus about 440 children to the Francis Howell School District. The board did not reconsider the $1.3 million in September tuition payments for the 1,000 or so students who have left to go to Francis Howell and 13 other districts.
Four Ritenour schools experienced a brief lockdown Thursday afternoon.
Police say a group of teens threw a brick at a passing car. The driver swerved in an attempt to hit the teen who threw the brick. The driver instead, collided with two houses, knocking down one homeowner's carport.
In total nine teens were arrested in connection to the incident.
The Early Childhood Center, Ritenour High School, Kratz Elementary School and Marvin Elementary School were all placed on external lockdown, meaning kids could not go outside for recess. The lockdown lasted from just before 1PM until around 1:20PM.
