EACS superintendent thanks community
East Allen County Schools Board of School Trustees and administration would like to thank all of those in our community who have supported our efforts during the recent redesign phases. We have made many changes over the past couple of years with three simple goals in mind: improve academic achievement for all of our students, reduce expenditures in order to remain fiscally responsible to our taxpayers, and better utilize our facilities so our capital funds can continue to maintain these buildings and their infrastructure to serve our students in the best way possible.
Whereas we are disappointed in the recent results of the referendum on the three building projects in Adams Township, we remain encouraged with the almost 3,000 votes in support of these projects. It is our hope to continue dialogue with those who have concerns with the projects as they stand so that we can continue progress with our facilities, which can be supported across all of our communities. There is work that must be completed at New Haven High School, the Harding facility, Park Hill Learning Center and New Haven Middle School. We will strive to complete the needed maintenance as we have done across all of our school buildings so they continue to serve our students and community in an effective, efficient manner.
At this time, design plans for the Woodlan and Heritage K-12 projects are being finalized in order to begin the architectural drawings for these two projects. After the drawings have been completed, bids will be awarded, and we look forward to breaking ground on both projects this fall.
We continue to make strong academic gains in all grade levels, and we offer an educational program that strives to meet the needs of all our students. It is the experience and expertise of all our teachers, administrators and support staff that keeps us enhancing the education.

Let’s see if I have this right. Our current president says our government should take a lot of money from a few and then give a little bit of money to many and calls it “social justice.”
Whereas he says nothing about the lottery that takes a little bit of money from many and then gives a lot of money to a few.
