School district trying to raise $3M

August 30, 2012

A central Indiana school district is looking to raise more than $3 million from business advertisements to pay for improvements to its athletic fields. Leaders of Johnson County's Clark-Pleasant schools say the fundraising is needed because district money for such projects isn't available. The money would go toward doubling the seating capacity of Whiteland Community High School's football field to 5,000 and replacing the grass football field with artificial turf. A new track and improvements to the soccer, baseball and softball facilities also are planned.
