WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – School safety, a new technology lab and summer maintenance was up for discussion at Wednesday evening’s school board meeting in West Lafayette.
The board accepted a Safe Haven grant to help fund the high school’s school resource officer. The board also accepted a donation from West Lafayette’s new Meijer store for $25,000. Eighty percent of those funds will go towards the corporation’s strategic plan and 20 percent put into a new technology lab at the high school.
The board approved multiple improvements to schools over the summer from repairing roofs to putting in new carpeting.
“You have to keep things up to date in order to make sure that they last,” Superintendent Rocky Killion said.
New restrooms at Cumberland Elementary are also among improvements being made over the summer break.
