Orange Grove Adult School gets reprieve

SACRAMENTO, CA -  A Sacramento school for disabled students over the age of 18 will continue to operate for another year, according to a school district spokesman.

Trent Allen with the San Juan Unified School District says the district has reached a tentative agreement with Alta Regional Center to keep Orange Grove Adult School open until June 30, 2012. Alta Regional Center will provide $1.1 million to make that happen, Allen says.
