Rhode Island higher education officials say a career training school serving about 300 students has abruptly closed. Mike Trainor, a spokesman for the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education, said that the Sawyer School was scheduled to resume classes Wednesday, but that students have been told the school is closed. About 20 students met Wednesday with the associate commissioner for academic affairs to discuss the situation, Trainor said. The state’s last review of Sawyer in September showed no indication of financial problems, he said, adding that the school has an arrangement for students to attend Lincoln Technical Institute in the event of a closure.
