Tobinworld, an educational nonprofit for autistic and emotionally challenged children, plans to lay off more than 100 employees in December with the closing of several schools in Glendale.

Tobinworld Elementary, Middle and High schools plus the Tobinworld Brill School of Autism and CBI School will close effective Dec. 20, according to a notice the school sent to the state Employment Development Department on Oct. 16.

The students will be transitioned to other schools in accordance with protocols established between Tobinworld and the school districts it serves, the notice said.

Among the 115 employees losing their positions are 20 teachers, 40 assistant teachers, 12 administrators, nine office staff and 11 bus drivers.

The city of Glendale purchased the property at 900-920 E. Broadway to develop it into affordable housing for seniors and families.
