Student Transfer Law
Missouri residents have been faced with a simple question, “How do students receive a quality education?” Right now, one of the options is the Missouri transfer law. Missouri’s transfer law has faced a variation of support and rejection with the possibility of students from unaccredited school districts transferring to County school districts such as Mehlville and Francis Howell.
