The Missouri school district transfer law that I have been posting on relies on a district's unaccreditation as the trigger for transferring out. St. Louis and Kansas City had hit that trigger earlier this summer. In an attempt to scale back the transfers and right the district's track, the Kansas City school district recently sought provisional accreditation. The Kansas City Star reports that the district's request has been denied. Thus, barring a change in the state transfer law, students will remain free to transfer out of Kansas City for, at least, another year.
