What is Revised Missouri Statute 167.131?
January 23, 2012
The Revised Missouri Statute 167.131 was included in the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993 as a way to protect families who were living in a school district that was not meeting the goals Missouri’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education set for it.
It states that children who live in an unaccredited school district have the right to transfer to a neighboring accredited one. Transportation and tuition are to be paid by the unaccredited district.
