LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI) - The Lafayette School Corporation makes some transformative decisions of their own at school board meeting.
The school board approved funding for the BoardBook program, a program which will make all meetings at the central office paperless.
The program is expected to save the district money and also help it go green. The board also discussed an easement request that would allow the city of Lafayette to use part of the Vinton elementary school property as a rain garden.
School officials said the rain garden will help drain an area that often floods, as well as help the city with an ongoing storm water project.
"The city is also going to work with Vinton on putting some flowers and other garden activities there. Not only that, they have offered to maintain it, which we think is a huge support for us," said Huddle.
The school board is set to approve the easement next month and then they will submit it to the city. ISTEP scores became available for families on Monday, but Superintendent Les Huddle said that they cannot comment yet on the scores.
