GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - State regulators have reopened a Glendale school for severely disabled students after officials fixed the mold, exposed nails and other safety issues that forced the closure in May.

The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/1VOERH8 ) that state Department of Education officials closed the Children’s Center for Neurodevelopmental Studies on May 26 after a surprise inspection found moldy bathrooms, cracked walls and filthy floors with exposed nails.

The school was inspected again on Monday and officials found improvements to the conditions. As a result, the Education Department has reinstated the facility.

The reinstatement means classes will resume next week for the more than 40 severely disabled students who were using the school’s services when it was closed.
