CLEARFIELD — As of Monday, the Clearfield Job Corps will not accept any new students.
In what the Department of Labor called a temporary enrollment suspension, “The enrollment suspension is projected to end June 30, 2013,” a U.S. Department of Labor press release posted on the Clearfield Job Corp’s web site said.
Exceptions can be made for applicants who are homeless, runaways or in the foster care system, the information said.
It also said students not enrolled by last Monday will have their information kept on file until enrollment resumes.
Cost-savings are behind the temporary measure, the Department of Labor said.
An article in the Jan. 24 edition of The Clipper said up to half of the center’s 1,100 student enrollment cut be cut, along with some staff.
Utah’s Congressional delegation and the Clearfield City Council were among those supporting keeping enrollment at the 1,100 student level.
The center is operated for the Department of Labor by Management Training Corporation of Centerville.
