Some schools cancel summer school in Missouri

For many students, summer school can either be a way to earn additional credits, catch up on course requirements or sharpen their educational skills. But for many schools in Missouri offering classes over the summer isn't going to be an option.

It's because of funding and what some superintendents say is a bad return on their investment,many school districts like Monroe City R-1 have decided not to pay staff and take on the extra costs of being open in the summer.

It's something they don't want to do, but had no choice.

Those school districts that won't be offering summer school this year include; Marion County, North Shelby, South Shelby, Lewis County C-one, Monroe City, Bowling Green, Clopton and Paris.
