Cuts at NCSD

The North Carolina Schools for the Deaf will remain open despite budget problems but there will be a cutback in services. Staff will lose work hours and residential students will return on Monday instead of Sundays. Last year, state officials discussed combining the two schools (one is in Wilson and one is in Morganton) in order to save money. But the governor decided against the plan and both schools will stay open.
