(AP) - Several suburban districts say a judge's refusal to temporarily block transfers from the unaccredited Kansas City School District won't stop them from keeping students out.
The Kansas City district's loss of accreditation took effect Sunday, triggering a state law that law requires unaccredited districts to pay to send students to accredited districts.
The problem for suburban districts is the amount of tuition the Kansas City district will pay and when those payments will be made. Five suburban districts sued, but a Jackson County judge denied their request for a temporary restraining order Friday.
The districts return to court next week. Meanwhile, they say they can't accept transfers unless the Kansas City district complies with their individual policies on tuition payments for out-of-district transfers.
