Mo. Supreme Court upholds KC student transfer law

By Matt Evans

The Missouri Supreme Court on Dec. 10 upheld for a second time a law requiring unaccredited schools to pay for students to go to a different school.

The 1993 Missouri law requires unaccredited districts to pay for the costs for students if they choose to go to a nearby accredited school instead.

Opponents of the law argued that the law violates the state Constitution because it is an unfunded mandate on local districts.

The unaccredited Kansas City School District estimates it could cost the district as much as $150 million to fund student transfers when the district's entire budget is $268 million.
