Information about CFES Lawsuit

You may have read in the newspapers lately of a school funding lawsuit filed against the state by several parties, including a group of school districts called the Coalition to Fund Excellent Schools (CFES), of which Parkway is a member. The coalition's main argument will be that inaccurate and disparate property assessments throughout the state make the distribution of state funds to school districts unfair and unlawful. Go to the links below for more information, or call Parkway's public affairs department at (314) 415-8069.
