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.
Purdue enrollment experts are predicting a smarter group of incoming freshman for the fall.
Based on projections and compared to current first-year students, Dean of Admissions Pam Horne says this fall’s group will have a higher grade point average and tested better on the SAT or ACT exam.
“The combination of our alumni, of our partners across campus – it’s not just the Admissions Office - who reaches out to these students, lets them know what Purdue has for them in terms of not only our academic programs but our co-curricular offerings that really makes the difference.”
