Start of school again delayed in Ferguson
FERGUSON, Mo. - The start of fall classes has been postponed again in the St. Louis suburb where a fatal police shooting continues to provoke unrest.
Classes in the Ferguson-Florissant School District were scheduled to begin on Aug. 14, five days after 18-year-old Michael Brown's death. The district initially postponed the start of school until Monday due to safety concerns, then decided to wait another full week until Aug. 25.
The nearby Jennings and Riverview Gardens school districts have also canceled classes Tuesday after starting back up just days earlier.
Classes in the Normandy school district began as scheduled on Monday. Brown was a 2014 graduate of Normandy High School.
