Several Mintonye Elementary school students are being treated for injuries after the bus they were on crashed on Interstate 65. It happened around 2 p.m. Thursday near Zionsville.
Tippecanoe School Corporation Superintendent Scott Hanback says five students and seven adults were on the bus, returning from a field trip.
He says the students are enrolled in the Greater Lafayette Area Special Services (GLASS) program and have some type of disability. The bus involved is owned by the Lafayette School Corporation, which administers the GLASS program.
Permanent classroom space is being added to a local elementary school. Tippecanoe School Corporation board members approved a bid to replace some portable classrooms at Wea Ridge with a new addition to the building.
Superintendent Scott Hanback says the temporary rooms are still functional, but the time has come to upgrade.
"Over time they're just not the best plan for kids. We want to get them inside a brick-and-mortar building from a safety standpoint, from a technology standpoint, integration."
