State Auditor Claire McCaskill says it’s time for the state to take a hard look at the School for the Deaf in Fulton. McCaskill says either drastic changes must take place to lower costs or it should be closed. Enrollment at the school has dropped from a high or about 400 to the current 136 students. Only 88 reside in the dorms built for 200. Costs per pupil have increased in the last four years from $40,000 to $48,000. An official with the school says a new superintendent who starts Monday is sure to review the audit and consider its suggestions.
