“After communicating with Mehlville and Kirkwood School District leaders late into the night, the Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri and the parents with whom we have been working are hopeful that a resolution to the school transfer situation, which has resulted in more than 200 students left without transportation to an accredited school district to attend, is possible.
While negotiations are still underway and a spot in Mehlville or Kirkwood has not been identified for all of the Riverview Gardens students who requested a transfer with transportation prior to the August 1 deadline, we believe that school officials are working in good faith to find a resolution and the parties agree that additional time for this purpose would be fruitful.
Therefore CEAM and the disaffected parents involved have decided not to file a petition at the St. Louis County courthouse today in the hope that by the end of this week the parties involved will have identified a solution that is in the best interest of children.
CEAM remains resolute that all Missouri children have access to the quality education they deserve.”
