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. The cost of transferring will be $17 million, paying for transportation and any extra cost. Despite transferring to accredited school districts, some are concerned the costs of the transfers outway the benefits, while others believe transferring is better for students and districts. This Stay Tuned episode takes a closer look into this law, discussing whether the student transfer will benefit the students and school districts academically and financially.
