Welcome to the Muncie Community Schools 

Muncie Community Schools and Ball State University

The Ball State Board of Trustees will meet June 25, 2018, to appoint members of the new MCS school board.

“Collaboration with the community is the key to success in this effort, and this forum is an early step in that collaboration,” said Ball State President Geoffrey S. Mearns.

The new school board will assume its responsibility July 1, 2018. It will consist of seven members who will serve staggered terms. Five will be appointed by Ball State from the applications submitted to the University. Two will be appointed from nominations provided by the Muncie mayor and Muncie City Council, respectively.

“Our goal is a diverse and complementary team that reflects the different perspectives of the community,” President Mearns said. “MCS school board members collectively must have a passion for public education and Muncie Community Schools; a record of civic engagement and community participation; experience in fiscal management or oversight, operational management or oversight, and/or team effectiveness; and demonstrated leadership.”

The new school board will spend the next two years creating a long-term plan for Muncie Community Schools. The first year will be spent engaging with the community.

Notice of Meetings:

The Muncie Community Schools’ Board of School Trustees will hold a public Board Meeting at 6:30 p.m., June 26, 2018, in the President’s Room at the Muncie Area Career Center, 2500 N. Elgin, Muncie, IN  47303.
