" Why would they want to be incredibly rigid.....?" right back at you Superintendent Coopman. In the current economic climate, when a large group of people expresses genuine concern about the cost and scope of this project, how can the the school corporation be so "incredibly rigid" to not even be willing to discuss scaling the project back,specifically, the bulk of which was the planned middle school and the most opposed item of the $60 million bond proposal package? When the remonstrance on this project was looming and public debates to inform the community who were largely unaware of the project were requested, how could the district be so "incredibly rigid" to refuse to participate so that the uninformed might become better informed? When community members attended the April school board meeting and publicly asked why the schools e-mail and other methods of wide scale information systems that are used for notifications for fundraisers and such could not be utilized to inform more than a select group of people of important meetings such as task forces, why has the school district been so "incredibly rigid" in refusing to do so even while admitting that to do so we bring no additional cost to the district?

Superintendent Coopman be thankful you aren't going to have to look back at a bad mistake. The state did you a favor. I wish rush county wouldn't have shot ourselves in the foot.

The state did its job well. The schools are spending way to much of our taxes to build themselves temples rather than schools. All you need is a brick building with windows. The days of spending our money on granite, golden inlayed floors etc are over.

I only with Center Grove would pay attention to what the Whiteland people did. We are next in line for outlandish tax hikes and closing of two perfectly good schools. I agree with expanding the high school, but other things they are proposing are just spending money for nothing!

We don't have that many people moving into our district. School officials have even admitted that!

JT Coopman lives in another world. My paid property taxes for year 2006 and 2007 reflected 69% of tax was for the school system. Coopman would like for us just to give our paycheck or social security checks to him. The "build it and they will come" attitude is for field of dreams and belongs in Hollywood. Coopman is afraid to have this issue put to a referendum and is trying to get this issue done before the new laws take effect. Shame on our Clark-Pleasant School Board and Superintendent "Czar Coopman"
