State Sets Public Hearings on Normandy School District


State education officials will hold hearings November 11 and December 11 to discuss the accreditation status and options for the future regarding the Normandy School District.

The hearings will be open to the public and will take place from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Viking Hall Auditorium, Normandy High School, 6701 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Louis.

The hearings will provide an opportunity to hear from Normandy School District officials regarding efforts to return the district to accredited status and determine what community resources may be useful or necessary in supporting that effort. Public input into a long-range plan for the support of and possible intervention in unaccredited schools will be heard.

In addition, state officials will receive information relating to district compliance with the statutory student transfer process that allows Normandy students to transfer to an accredited school district.

Persons wishing to make public comments will be asked to provide their names and addresses and limit their remarks to five minutes.
