A Silicon Valley school that trained children and adults to operate computers was shut down last week after Gov. George Deukmaejian withdrew state funding for the project.

The San Jose school, called the Institute of Computer Technology, was to receive $150,000 from the state, said David Gordon, an associate superintendent in the state's education department.

The Governor said through a spokesman that he believes the computer school should be supported by the local school districts.

Previously, the school was funded partly by private funds, and partly by three school districts in the San Jose area, Mr. Gordon said. Computer companies in the area had also donated equipment and sent volunteers to the school.
