Missouri law allows students to transfer to an accredited district, with tuition and transportation paid for by the unaccredited district. Area districts are still wrangling with transfer policies.</p> Thu, 22 Dec 2011 15:58:05 +0000 Sylvia Maria Gross 9494 at http://kcur.org Parents Consider Transferring Students Out Of KCPS
