ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – This could be an important day for the future of the Normandy School District.  That’s because Missouri Education commissioner Chris Nicastro is set to meet with leaders of the failing district.

There could be several issues up for discussion including the financial future of the struggling district and what that could mean for the students who didn’t transfer out of the unaccredited district.

Normandy School District leaders say they need an emergency $5 million from state lawmakers to stay open through the end of the school year. If they don’t get it, Normandy could go bankrupt by April 1st.
