Utah school for disabled to lay off workers

The State Developmental Center in American Fork will lay off up to 45 workers in upcoming weeks because of a $6 million budget cut.

Superintendent Karen Clarke said the school has been discussing the impact of budget cuts with parents, staff and community.

More than 200 developmentally disabled residents who are unable to speak or care for themselves live at the school. The Deseret News
