Hurricane relief efforts have led to about 500 so-called “Hurricane Katrina Kids” being enrolled in Missouri’s schools. Education Commissioner Kent King says many of these children have already been placed in dozens of school districts throughout the state. He expects most of the newcomers will end up in the St. Louis area and in places between St. Louis and the hurricane-ravaged areas of the Gulf Coast. More than 100 school districts have already enrolled children. The districts are being asked to relax the record requirements that usually come with admission of new students. In the case of many of these kids, the records are not available or have been lost.
