Parents worry school closing could hurt special-needs students

Last night, a public forum on the potential closing of the KC School District’s R.J. Delano School was held, and parents of the special-needs students weren’t happy.

District officials say mixing in the school’s special-needs students with the district’s non-disabled population could actually help them learn and expand their choices, but parents at last night’s forum worried that the move would put students in the hands of teachers who don’t have proper training to deal with special needs.
