Abstract: This paper justifies an assertion by [Elder, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc., 2009] that Galois scaffolds make the questions of Galois module structure tractable. Let $ k$ be a perfect field of characteristic $ p$ and let $ K=k((T))$. For the class of characteristic $ p$ elementary abelian $ p$-extensions $ L/K$ with Galois scaffolds described in loc. cit., we give a necessary and sufficient condition for the valuation ring $ \mathfrak{O}_L$ to be free over its associated order $ \mathfrak{A}_{L/K}$ in $ K[\mathrm {Gal}(L/K)]$. Interestingly, this condition agrees with the condition found by Y. Miyata concerning a class of cyclic Kummer extensions in characteristic zero.
