(WHITELAND) - A central Indiana school district is looking to raise more than $3 million from business advertisements to pay for improvements to its athletic fields.

The Associated Press reports, leaders of Johnson County's Clark-Pleasant schools say the outside fundraising is needed because district money for such projects isn't available since statewide property tax caps went into effect a few years ago.

The Daily Journal of Franklin reports the money would go toward doubling the seating capacity of Whiteland Community High School's football field to 5,000 and replacing the grass football field with artificial turf. A new running track and improvements to the soccer, baseball and softball facilities are also planned.

Athletic director Ken Sears says businesses or individuals making a $1 million commitment would have their names put on the school's sports buildings.
