CARMEL, Ind., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, ITT Educational Services, Inc. released the following statement:
"It is with profound regret that we must report that ITT Educational Services, Inc. will discontinue academic operations at all of its
ITT Technical Institutes permanently after approximately 50 years of continuous service.
With what we believe is a complete disregard by the U.S. Department of Education for due process to the company, hundreds of thousands of
current students and alumni and more than 8,000 employees will be negatively affected.
The actions of and sanctions from the U.S. Department of Education have forced us to cease operations of the ITT Technical Institutes,
and we will not be offering our September quarter. We reached this decision only after having exhausted the exploration of alternatives,
including transfer of the schools to a non-profit or public institution.
Effective today, the company has eliminated the positions of the overwhelming majority of our more than 8,000 employees.
Our focus and priority with our remaining staff is on helping the tens of thousands of unexpectedly displaced students with their records and
future educational options.
We believe the government's action was inappropriate and unconstitutional, however, with the ITT Technical Institutes ceasing operations,
it will now likely rest on other parties to understand these reprehensible actions and to take action to attempt to prevent this from happening again."
