Student Transfer Information for 2014-2015 School Year
The MO Supreme Court decision upholding state statue 167.131 allows students in unaccredited districts such as Riverview Gardens School District (RGSD), Normandy and Kansas City, to transfer to accredited districts in the same or adjoining counties. Students who live in the Riverview Gardens School District community may transfer to public schools in St. Louis County, St. Louis City, St. Charles County, and Jefferson County. Riverview Gardens School District is not responsible for tuition to private or parochial schools. The Riverview Gardens School District will continue to provide transportation to the school districts of Mehlville and Kirkwood for the 2014-2015 school year. Parents who transfer students to districts other than Mehlville and Kirkwood are responsible for their child’s transportation to and from school.
Students who are currently enrolled in another district via the transfer process and wish to remain at that district for the upcoming school year must contact their child’s current district for instructions on how to re-enroll.
All parents or guardians of children in Riverview Gardens School District or the RGSD community who are NOT currently participating in the transfer program but wish to transfer students for the 2014 - 2015 school year, MUST verify residence with Riverview Gardens School District and complete the common application form by February 7, 2014. Several documents are needed to verify residence including a: valid deed to home, current real estate tax receipt, mortgage statement or signed residential lease agreement and two of the following: current utility bill dated within the last 30 days (telephone bills are not accepted), valid occupancy permit dated within 1 year and listing both parent and child, 2013 personal property tax receipt, 2013 homeowner's/renters insurance policy or Social Services/Social Security Statement. Riverview Gardens School District will verify residence of students by appointment by contacting Renata Redden at 314.869.7436 ext. 1415.
