Several members of the public appeared online and in person at the Indiana school board meeting to discuss the Indiana high school racist incident.

On April 28, district officials found a racially insensitive threat written on a bathroom wall. This prompted a search of the school by four K-9 units and an increased police presence the next day. Last night, State Police Public Information Officer Private Cliff Greenfield said the investigation was ongoing, but his department was open to discussing things with the parents. The same sentiment was expressed by Superintendent Michael Vuckovich. Many comments from the public were respectful that the investigation may take some time, but some wanted to know what was being done now regarding not only the investigation, but also addressing racist and bigoted behavior in the district.

Vuckovich also said he wants to implement the School-SPIRIT program in the district, which he says will help open the lines of communication.

In other business, the board gave preliminary approval to the 2022-23 budget, which is $61,195,340. The budget has a shortfall of $3,134,214, but will result in no tax increases for residents of the district.
