LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Greater Lafayette Career Academy is approved by all three school corporations.
This means the center now has a governing structure provided by the Lafayette, West Lafayette and Tippecanoe School Corporations.
The next step is for a five-year-plan and the approval documents to be approved by Indiana's Department of Education.
Again, the Career Academy is to enhance students' education by offering trade skills and getting them ready for the work force.
According to LSC's superintendent receiving approval was an important big first step.
"We want to make sure whose role is this and who's gonna kind of pay the bills and right now," said Les Huddle. "TSC will be the bill payer."
Huddle says that LSC and West Lafayette School Corporation will also pay TSC its fair share.
