BX special needs school takes bold stand to avoid closure

PELHAM BAY - A Bronx pre-school for developmentally disabled children has been saved from the chopping block. The Bronx Organization for the Learning Disabled (BOLD) welcomed students back this week after downsizing from two locations into one. The school currently teaches five classes and is waiting for the Department of Health to approve two more. Administrators say they still have some work to do to meet all the necessary regulations, but that they're looking forward to the new year.
