A business and medical training school operating in Connecticut for more than half a century and an associated enterprise which has been in operation more than twenty years have abruptly closed their doors,  leaving as many as 12-hundred students with no clear educational path .

The Sawyer School,  with branches in Hartford and Hamden and the Butler Business School in Bridgeport offer certificates in medical assistance,  office assistance and phlebotomy.

Executive Director Jane Ciarleglio with the State Office of Higher Education says her office has asked the Attorney General’s office and federal authorities to look into the closing.

She says her office received an e-mail Sunday that the schools were closing immediately —  even though they’re supposed to give sixty days notice.  She’s asking students to register with her office,  so they can try to arrange to help them complete their studies.  (Click her for website of the Office Of Higher Education.)
