This Day in Dayton, 16 December

The December 1986 Tippecanoe School Corporation School News included an article on the timeline for James Cole Elementary, set to open in 1988 to replace Clarks Hill school in Lauramie Township. It failed to note that the southern half of Sheffield township (then attending Dayton Elementary) would be moved to James Cole and the southern half of Perry township (Hershey) would be brought to Dayton to equalize population at the schools on the eastern side of the county.
