On the initial day of official operation as the Normandy Schools Collaborative, members of the Joint Executive Governing Board held their first meeting Tuesday, chaired by Superintendent Dr. Tyrone McNichols. They focused on adopting critical operating policies and discussing outreach possibilities with area legislators, community members and others interested in the future of Normandy schools.
The Normandy Schools Collaborative officially starts today, and the district’s Joint Executive Governing Board is holding its first meeting at the Normandy central office. The State Board of Education appointed two additional board members to the Board yesterday.
The Normandy School District will not draw down an additional $2 million in state funds that was appropriated in the Missouri state budget to help the district finish the school year. Department and district review of financial statements, outstanding bills and bank balances shows that the district will not have a negative balance at the end of June.
DATE AGENDA MINUTES
The Department will do everything we can to ensure access to quality education for the children and families involved.
Unfortunately, the transfer program is not sustainable in its current form. The State Board of Education is working to balance the need for choice with the educational needs of the students served in the Normandy Schools Collaborative.
The Department has issued updated guidance for student transfers from unaccredited to accredited districts. It is non-regulatory guidance provided to offer districts assistance in implementing state law.
