Students, Teachers Seek Answers Over School Closures

Twelve hundred students at three occupational training schools are have been affected by the abrupt closure of the institutions.

About 60 students and staffers were literally out in the cold this morning at the Sawyer School’s Hartford campus.  No one was around to provide them answers as to why the school was shuttered over the weekend.

Instructor Don Lanier of Ellington says they’ve been told nothing to this point.  He said teachers were not informed about separation or severance.  State law requires the schools to provide 60 days notification of any closure.

The schools provide classes in medical and office assisting, among others.  Students have been advised to contact the state officer of higher education for guidance.  The Sawyer campus in Hamden has been closed, as well as the Butler Business School in Bridgeport.
