House panel to review student transfer legislation

Monday, April 7, 2014 | 7:20 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri House committee plans to review Senate-backed legislation seeking to address student transfers form the state's most troubled school districts.

Unaccredited districts must pay for students to transfer to a better-performing nearby public school. That has led to financial problems and prompted concern about the ability of districts to control the number of students.

The Senate approved its legislation in February. The House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee has scheduled a public hearing Tuesday.
