NY School for the Deaf to remain open despite budget cuts

The New York School for the Deaf in Greenburgh will remain open despite concerns that the school would close due to state budget shortfalls.

The school will remain open by having local school districts pay for students' educations at the school and then receive reimbursements from the state. Officials say that districts would not receive the reimbursements until at least 2012.

The school has been educating deaf children for nearly 200 years.
