Dr. Coopman ends his term after taking over little more than a year and a half ago.

Earlier this morning, Monroe County Community School Corporation Superintendent J.T. Coopman announced his intention to retire at the end of next month.  He took over the helm of the financially troubled district about a year and a half ago.

His tenure has been largely focused on helping the MCCSC stabilize after a series of state funding cuts and budget shortfalls.  Much of his time in office focused on the passage of a budget referendum which offset about $7.8 million dollars in lost revenue.

He came to the district after a lengthy tenure as superintendent of the Clark-Pleasant Community School District in Whiteland.  The decision may be driven by lingering concerns over the health of his wife.
