Clay Community School Corporation officials believe the intended purpose of Thursday night's special session meeting has been met.
School Board President Terry Barr has said she thinks the community is better informed, not only about the costs of the project, but the process of developing the project plans.
"I thought the meeting went rather well," Superintendent Dan Schroeder said.
Schroeder said the presenters gave the public as much information on plans and costs as were available. More definitive plans would only be available as a project is approved and moves forward.
Both Barr and Schroeder have expressed hope that more people will attend the meeting on Thursday Sept. 27 at North Clay Middle School.
"I am not sure what to expect next Thursday, but I am hoping there will be a larger crowd. I know everyone is busy in the evenings, with little time to spare, but taking care of the physical needs of our schools is of major importance to our community. The community as a whole is very supportive of our schools, but I also understand the concerns about property taxes," Barr said.
Schroeder is hopeful that those in the community who have not yet expressed their ideas or concerns will do so on Thursday.
"We hope that if people have new issues, they would bring it up to us," Schroeder said.
Members of the community that could not make it to the meeting this past Thursday will be able to watch a taped copy that will be aired on cable channel 2.
The first part will air Monday at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., and the second part will air Tuesday at the same times. The tapes will be replayed in the same manner on Wednesday and Thursday at the same times.
"The purpose of this meeting is to gain input to make a decision," said Schroeder.
The meeting on Sept. 27 will be held at 6:30 in the Media Center.
