This Day in Dayton, 22 August

In 1988, students in Tippecanoe School Corporation reported back to school on August 22, and students in the southern portion of Sheffield township were going to a new school, Cole Elementary, near Stockwell, where they would study with students from Lauramie Township. Splitting off part of the student population relieved potential crowding at Dayton, but disrupted traditional community ties that were already strained by dislocations related to the building of SIA.
