State Senate bill on student transfers

Political press releases and/or newsletters are not the normal fare for RaytownOnline.com. This email newsletter from State Senator LeVota has a portion in it relevant to  the transferring of student out of student from Kansas City Public Schools and into Raytown Schools.  The portion concerning transfers follows as well as a link to a web version of the entire email. 


 

Fixing the Student Transfer Issue
The issue with the most focus in the Senate is the efforts to clarify an existing state law that allows students in unaccredited public school districts to transfer to a nearby accredited district of their choice.  Despite the fact that this policy adds uncertainty and insecurity for all school districts involved, the Missouri Supreme Court has issued rulings upholding the law.  In the wake of those rulings, many students in unaccredited districts have transferred to other schools, which highlights the need for the General Assembly to finally address the issue to stop the anticipated problems.

That is why I filed Senate Bill 624. The bill allows school districts to establish policies that outline class sizes and student-to-teacher ratios.  Once a district establishes a desirable class size and student-to-teacher ratio, districts will not be required to accept transfer students from unaccredited school districts if the move would violate the class size and student-to-teacher ratio.

This bill addresses the student transfer issue in a way that helps both the accredited and unaccredited school districts.  It is unfair to overwhelm accredited districts with transferring students. On the other hand, it’s also unfair to turn students away if the district has the room to accommodate them.

Senate Bill 624 also prohibits the State School Board from classifying a school district as unaccredited or reclassifying a district’s accreditation to provisional if a vacancy exists on the board for the congressional district where the school is located.
