KIRKWOOD, Mo. – The Kirkwood School District says it will not offer a reduced tuition rate for transfer students.
More than 150 students from Riverview Gardens transferred to Kirkwood last school year because Riverview lost its accreditation. Riverview must pay tuition for each student, and it has significantly hurt their finances.
Missouri recommended districts like Kirkwood consider a reduced tuition rate, but Monday night the Kirkwood board voted to keep their rate the same.
