In addition, it is reported that many staff members were clueless. Hopefully, families have been informed and this will not be an instant replay of the former Hidden Lake Academy/Ridge Creek School facility closing in Georgia - only on a grander scale.
It would be helpful to inform the U.S. State Department to remove these facilities from their recommendation list for families. Apparently, CRC/Aspen Education has more clout than advocates and children with Washington
Facility programs that sources state have been flagged for closing:
- Academy at Swift River - Massachusetts
- Talisman - North Carolina
- Stone Mountain - North Carolina
- SUWS of Idaho
- Adirondeck Leadership - Upstate N.Y.
Although we applaud CRC Health/Aspen Education on their purported decision, if true, sadly, Cooper Canyon and Island View do not appear on the list - along with the rest of the lot. One can dream.
UPDATE : CONFIRMATION OF CLOSINGS
