STAMFORD - Parents and students at a Stamford high school say they are livid after a state Board of Education decision to shutter the school for the next two years.

Parents with students at J.M Wright Technical High School say they now have to find a new school to enroll them in and have less than a month to get it done.

Connecticut Department of Education spokesperson Tom Murphy says Wright Tech will remain closed for the next two years so a program can be developed to ensure the school's future viability.
