LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The answer to Lafayette’s looming overcrowding issue is now on the table for school board members. They now just have to figure out which one it is.

The 64-person task force made up of teachers, administrators, parents and business leaders presented their preferred solution to the growth projected for Lafayette School Corporation’s south side, and its ripple effect through the district Monday evening.

Each of the eight groups had very different ideas, from expanding various schools or reopening former elementary schools like Oakland or Linnwood to buying the former Lafayette Life building at 18th and Teal.

A public meeting for board members to discuss the various options will be set at its meeting July 14.

We will post a copy of each presentation on our website once LSC releases them Tuesday morning.

Superintendent Les Huddle said all the changes under consideration will not take place for the upcoming school year. The soonest any changes would happen would be the fall of 2015.
