SLPS Deed Restrictions lifted

The Grade blog on St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported this morning that the Special Administrative Board of the SLPS voted last night to remove their policy on deed restrictions limiting the sale of closed public schools. CEO Rick Sullivan said the board caved to legislative pressure. Rep. Steve Tilley’s HB 1040 to reverse the deed restriction policy has attracted 100 co-signers.

Public officials discuss open enrollment in Missouri

Open Enrollment opens up a choice to parents to move their child to another, neighboring public school district. For Missouri, this reform measure makes sense: many district boundaries are no longer aligned with population centers, and this would allow families to choose a closer school or a more appropriate school for their child. In the case of St. Louis Public Schools, as the video mentions, it is the easiest way to help parents seek an accredited public education.
