According to USDB Communications & Development Officer Kimberley Pierce, the special needs school was targeted and a newly installed playground for the blind and deaf was used for graffiti.
Pierce said that the schools have spent the last two years fund raising and requesting funding from the legislature to build an adaptive playground to meets the needs of handicapped and sensory impaired students. The project was not yet complete.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the playground was scheduled for Monday.
Pierce said Salt Lake County Unified Police was investigating the vandalism.
Peirce also said an employee of the facility was working late on Monday night and saw some teenagers nearby.
