Missouri Education Chief at a loss, if Normandy goes bankrupt

(KPLR) – Missouri’s Education Commissioner says no one in her office has any idea what will happen, if the Normandy School District goes bankrupt April first.

The district says they will be unable to pay their bills after April first; because they’ve paid so much in tuition and busing costs for students who’ve transferred out of the unaccredited district.

Normandy is asking for an emergency appropriation of five million dollars from the state legislature, to make it through the end of the school year.

If lawmakers refuse, then Normandy will go bankrupt two months before the end of the school year.

    Bail them out for the school year. Tax payers’ money has spent foolishly on other occasions. School Boards don’t make the district, the community does.
