Providence school accused of violating federal law

According to letters obtained by NBC 10, the Harold A. Birch Vocational Program at Mount Pleasant High School violated the civil rights of students and failed to provide them with the right kinds of services.

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras told NBC 10 the program was shut down and the principal was removed. He said the school failed its students.

In January, the NBC 10 I-Team reported that the John E. Fogarty Center and the Trudeau Center had also been investigated.

According to reports, those findings have not yet been made available.
