(AP) - Missouri lawmakers are drafting proposals to let suburban school districts enter contracts to operate soon-to-be unaccredited schools in Kansas City.
The legislation also would create a central clearinghouse where families from the unaccredited St. Louis and nearby Riverview Gardens districts could find spots for a child in a charter, suburban or even a private or parochial school
Senate Republican Jane Cunningham, of St. Louis County, says legislative staff are drafting a bill for the upcoming session.
The proposals are an attempt to deal with changes resulting from a 2010 Missouri Supreme Court decision. The court ruled that students living in unaccredited districts are legally entitled to free transfers and that accredited schools must take them.
