A lawsuit over Pennsylvania’s Scranton State School for the Deaf has been dropped. A hearing on the suit was set for tomorrow morning but that’s been cancelled after the parents of three students dropped the complaint. The doors of the school are set to close at the end of June and until recently there was no plan in place for the students. State officials finally showed parents a plan for services to move to the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. The Scranton campus will no longer offer high school grades and become a permanent day program for younger children. Students living on campus will have to be gone by the 2011-12 school year.
