Lafayette School Corporation

The Lafayette School Corporation on Wednesday announced plans to turn the former Lafayette Life Insurance building into a career academy for high school students.

Superintendent Les Huddle says next week the school board is slated to vote on a $2 million contract to buy the 94-thousand square foot building that has been vacant since the insurance company headquarters moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 2011.
