Time running out to save Normandy School District

NORMANDY, MO (KTVI)– The second of seven transition community meetings was held Monday night to keep the Normandy School District doors open past this spring.

The goal to come up with a plan in case the legislature doesn’t approve enough funding to keep the school district open past the spring.

Last week, the Missouri house rejected the senate’s plan to give the district $1.5 million.
The house wanted to give the district $5 million, but it was determined Normandy didn’t need that full amount.

Now the district is at a standstill so the group is also looking for additional resources and is inviting heavy hitters in the community to listen to their dilemma.

The last meeting is scheduled for May 13, a day before the legislative session comes to a close.
