Thursday Evening, June 13, 1957 Urge Extensive Carroll County Consolidations Eight Townships Affected By Proposals of Purdue Survey Team and Citizens Group DELPHI, Ind. — Sweeping changes in the Carroll county school system which would close four grade schools and four high schools through consolidations are among recommendations made by a survey team from the Division of Education at Purdue university assisted by citizens committees and school officials in the various townships. The survey staff recommended a single high school at Flora to serve the pupils of Burlington, Carrollton, Washington., Democrat, Monroe, Jackson, Liberty and Koek Creek townships. High schools at Camden, Cutler, Burlington and Deer Creek would be closed under this plan. It was proposed that grade school students in Rock Creek, Liberty and Jackson townships attend a grade school at Camden; that a grade school at Carrollton serve those in Carrollton and Washington townships; that Monroe and Democrat pupils attend grade school at Flora; and that the Burlington school be used for pupils of grades one to eight in Burlington township. These consolidations would close the present grade schools in Rock Creek, Liberty, Washington and Democrat townships. The only alternative offered by the survey staff was for Rock Creek and Liberty townships to merge with the Delphi-Deer Creek township'school corporation. This would force a change in some of the garde school recommenda* tions. Proposed Plans The consolidations call for a $2,160,000 school building program, beginning with the construction this year of a new 17-classroom elementary school and a physical education gymnasium, music wing and vocational agriculture facilities addition to the present high school at Flora at an estimated cost of. $760,000. A new 15-elassroom elementary school would be built at Camden in 1959-60 at a cost of $350,000, utilizing the present new gymnasium. A new 10-classroom elementary school would be built on a new site at Burlington in 1962-63 at an estimated cost of $300,000, and the final step would .be the construction at Flora in 1965-66 of a $750,000 25-teacher station junior high school. Following the construction of this junior high, all seventh and eighth grade pupils from the other seven townships involved in the consolidation plan would be sent to Flora. Whether or not the proposed consolidations are carried out will be a question to be decided by each of the eight townships involved. ' ' One of the townships, Democrat, already has been invited to join Adams township, Carroll county, and Ross and Owen townships, Clinton county, in a merger. Members of the Citizs^s Committee in the survey of the eight Carroll county townships conducted by the Purdue team were: Burlington: Earl Oyler, Dean Sanderson and Earl Rodkey; 'Carrollton: Frank Hood, Max Landis, Sr., and B. W. Richter; Democrat: Robert Ayres, Mrs. Doyle Shaffer and Donald Wagoner; Jackson: Voris Chapman, Jean Hedderick and Dean McCain. Liberty: Martin E.
