Thank you for your interest in the Lafayette School Corporation!
To be a student in the Lafayette School Corporation (LSC), the student must:
1) have legal residence within the boundaries of the LSC, or
2) be the child of an LSC employee, or
3) have legal residence within the boundaries of the Tippecanoe School Corporation (TSC) district and apply for transfer under the Interlocal Agreement between the LSC and TSC. The Interlocal Agreement applies to transfers into LSC only.
Per Board Policy J215 Cash Transfer Tuition, an employee of the LSC may elect to enroll their child in the LSC at no cost to the employee. If you are an LSC employee and your legal residence is not within the LSC boundaries, but want your child to attend school in the LSC, you must complete an Employee Request to Enroll Cash Transfer Tuition Student form.
If you are not an LSC employee and your legal residence is in the TSC district, and want to apply for a transfer into the LSC for your child, you must complete a Transfer Request Application and submit the form to the Superintendent in TSC. After the TSC Superintendent takes action on your request, it will be forwarded to the LSC Superintendent for consideration.
ASSIGNMENT OF ELEMENTARY STUDENTS TO SCHOOLS
Each student shall be assigned to the elementary school in the attendance area in which the student resides. For the purposes of school attendance, the residence of a student shall be considered to be the voting residence of the student's parents or legal guardian. Upon enrollment, parents will be asked to provide proof of residency in Lafayette School Corporation. The documentation will be verified by the school principal or his/her designee.
Those students who do not live in Lafayette School Corporation will be unable to enroll without an approved tuition transfer from another district. Elementary students who have been approved to attend a school other than the school in their home attendance district must successfully comply with all LSC elementary student handbook policies and procedures. Failure to do so may result in the student being assigned back to their home school.
The elementary student who moves out of the LSC may complete the semester before being required to transfer. Transfers within LSC during the school year are strongly discouraged except under extreme circumstances.
Moving to another school
If a student plans to move to another school attendance area within the Lafayette School Corporation the parents should call the office during the school year as soon as they know the move will take place.
For information regarding requested transfers to another LSC school please check Board Policy J 220 . Transfer forms may be obtained at a student’s home school office.
In December 2005, Jefferson High School opened a store called It’s My Closet. The philosophy behind the store serves to enhance the concept of nurturing the whole child within the LSC mission statement. The store, specializing in gently used clothing, furniture and household items, is open to all LSC students and their families. All items are given to shoppers at no cost.
The store and donation center are located in portable classrooms behind Durgan School, at 18th Street and Hiatt Drive. Lafayette School Corp. donates the use of the buildings and also pays the utilities. All workers are volunteers; no one is paid for their time or donations.
En diciembre de 2005, la escuela secundaria Jefferson abrió una tienda llamada It’s My Closet. La filosofía detrás de la tienda es cooperar con el concepto de crianza integral del niño dentro de la declaración de misión de LSC. La tienda, que se especializa en ropa, muebles y artículos para el hogar en buen estado, está abierta a todos los estudiantes de LSC y sus familias. Todos los artículos se entregan a los clientes sin costo alguno.
La tienda y el centro de donaciones están ubicados en aulas portátiles detrás de la escuela Durgan, ubicada en la calle 18th y Hiatt Drive. La Corporación Escolar Lafayette facilita uno de sus edificios y también paga los servicios básicos en los que se incurren. Todos los trabajadores son voluntarios; a nadie se le paga por su tiempo o donaciones.

After receiving reports that up to 50% of homeless children were not attending school, Congress established the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. President Ronald Regan signed it into law on July 22, 1987. The McKinney-Vento Act was created with the goal of ensuring the enrollment, attendance, and success of homeless children and youth in school. It provides states with funding to help remove barriers to education.
Who is Homeless?
Children who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate night time residence:
- "Double up" - Sharing the housing of others due to the loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reasons.
- Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, camping grounds, due to lack of adequate alternative accommodations.
- Living in emergency or transitional shelters.
- Living in a public or private place not designed for humans to live.
- Migratory children living in above circumstances.
- Awaiting foster care placement.
- Living in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.
- Unaccompanied Youth - Children or youth who meets the definition of homeless and not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian.
Residency and Educational Rights
Students who are in temporary, inadequate and homeless living situations have the following rights:
- Immediate enrollment in the school they last attended or the school in whose attendance area they are currently staying even if they do not have all of the documents normally required at the time of enrollment;
- Access to free meals and textbooks, Title I and other educational programs and other comparable services including transportation;
- Attendance in the same classes and activities that students in other living situations also participate in without fear of being separated or treated differently due to their housing situations.

The Lafayette School Corporation will launch an electronic flyer communications tool called “Peachjar” beginning November 20, 2018. This E-flyer dissemination service via Peachjar will be the only means for community organizations to share their information concerning programs, activities, and events with Lafayette School Corporation students and/or parents.
E-mails will be sent to community organizations soon informing them how to use the Peachjar service. Community organizations which do not solicit fees for their services may be allowed to display E-flyers for free, while other community organizations will be charged a fee by Peachjar for this service. Typically, Peachjar officials noted that these fees are usually much less than the cost to print, copy, and deliver flyers. To learn more about Peachjar, visit www.peachjar.com.
Lafayette School Corporation officials will continue to review all flyers submitted to Peachjar to be displayed on the LSC websites for viewing by our students and parents. Lafayette School Corporation will approve E-flyers that promote an educational experience for our students, provide a healthy use of the students’ leisure time, and/or provides enrichment activities for our students.
To ensure timely posting, E-flyers should be uploaded for approval a minimum of 10 business days in advance of the event.
Informational materials to be distributed via Peachjar by community organizations must meet certain criteria to prevent the exploitation of Lafayette School Corporation students. As such, the Lafayette School Corporation will NOT approve the distribution of E-flyers which:
- Are deemed not suitable for children
- Disrupt the educational process
- Are obscene, lewd, or vulgar
- Are libelous
- Contain language that is intimidating, demeaning, harassing, or threatening on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin or ancestry, sex, age, and disability; or language including, but not limited to, racial, sexual, or ethnic slurs
- Promote a business or commercial product
- Promote, or are hostile to, a particular political party, political organization, or political viewpoint
- Promote, or are hostile to, any religion; however, informational material of events and/or activities by religious organizations will not be denied if the material complies with other guidelines… and does proselytize (attempt to convert or ask to join) that religion
NOTE: These guidelines may be updated periodically to reflect changes in State and Federal laws, as well as changes in community standards!
E-flyer design information
E-flyer information is limited to a basic description of the event/activity/service, along with Time/Date/Place/Contact Person/Telephone number or Email Address. E-flyers may not list prices for events in the body of the flyer, but can link to such information through a Peachjar button that will allow families to contact community organizations with any questions and/or to register their children for an event if they so choose.
Each E-flyer will be reviewed on an individual basis. A decision not to post a community organization’s information is not to be considered disapproval of the activity/event; but rather, a decision based on the best interests of the Lafayette School Corporation and its students and/or parents. If applicable, Lafayette School Corporation officials will share the reasons for rejection, as well as what changes can be made to meet corporation guidelines.
ALL E-flyers MUST include the following disclaimer:
“This event and/or activity is neither sponsored, nor endorsed, by the Lafayette School Corporation.”
Questions should be directed to Brandon Hawkins, Lafayette School Corporation, Bhawkins@lsc.k12.in.us.
