LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Parents will have a chance to give feedback on the new elementary boundaries for the Lafayette School Corporation (LSC).
Oakland Elementary will close at the end of the school year. The school district recently decided to redraw boundaries to relieve overcrowding the original recommendations would create.
LSC Deputy Superintendent Robert Foreman said Oakland students will now go to Edgelea, Miami and Miller Elementary Schools next fall.
"It gives a capacity of 82 to 87 percent. A kind of optimum capacity is 85 percent. We won't have any schools above 90 percent," Foreman explained.
LSC will provide transportation to all Oakland students going to a new school. Parents can comment on the boundary changes during a school board meeting Monday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hiatt Administration Center on Cason Street.
