Legislature Still Examining Takeover of Muncie Schools

State lawmakers are still mulling over a bill to turn full control of Muncie Community Schools over to Ball State University.

The Senate Appropriations Committee will likely revisit the proposal next week, after the Indiana house passed the legislation earlier this month. The full Senate has until March 6th to pass the bill.

Ball State president Geoffrey Mearns says it lines up perfectly with his initial goal of helping Ball State to engage more with the local community.
