At the time designated for the sale, the School Corporation will receive at the offices of Brown County Schools, 357 East Main Street, Nashville, Indiana 47448, and consider bids for the purchase of the following described Bonds:

General Obligation Bonds of 2010, Second Series (the "Bonds") of the School Corporation, an Indiana political subdivision, in the principal amount of $1,900,000; Fully registered form; Denomination $5,000 and integral multiples thereof; Originally dated the date of delivery of the Bonds; Bearing interest at a rate or rates to be determined by bidding, payable on July 15, 2011, and semiannually thereafter; These Bonds will be initially issued in a Book Entry System (as defined in the Bond Resolution) unless otherwise requested by the successful purchaser.  Interest payable by check mailed one business day prior to the interest payment date or by wire transfer to depositories on the interest payment date to the person or depository in whose name each Bond is registered with the Registrar on the fifteenth day immediately preceding such interest payment date; Maturing or subject to mandatory redemption on January 15 and July 15 on the dates and amounts as follows:

Date - Amount: 7/15/2012 -$95,000; 1/15/2013 - 95,000; 7/15/2013 - 210,000; 1/15/2014 - 210,000; 7/15/2014 - 210,000; 1/15/2015 - 210,000; 7/15/2015 - 215,000; 1/15/2016 - 215,000; 7/15/2016 -                         220,000; 1/15/2017 - 220,000.

The Bonds are not subject to redemption prior to maturity.

The Bonds have been designated as qualified tax-exempt obligations for purposes of Section 265(b)(3).

A bid may designate that a given maturity or maturities shall constitute a term bond, and the semi-annual amounts set forth above shall constitute the mandatory sinking fund redemption requirements for such term bond or bonds.  For purposes of computing net interest cost, the mandatory redemption amounts shall be treated as maturing on the dates set forth in the schedule set forth above.

Each bid must be for all of the Bonds and must state the rate of interest which each maturity of the Bonds is to bear, stated in multiples of 1/8th or 1/20th of 1%.  The maximum interest rate of the Bonds shall not exceed 5% per annum.  All Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate, and the rate of interest bid for each maturity must be equal to or greater than the rate bid on the immediately preceding maturity.  Bids shall set out the total amount of interest payable over the term of the Bonds and the net interest cost on the Bonds covered by the bid.  No bid for less than 99.5% of the face value of the Bonds will be considered.  The Bonds will be awarded to the highest qualified bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance herewith.  The highest bidder will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the School Corporation, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedule provided by the School Corporation and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any.  No conditional bids will be considered.  The right is reserved to reject any and all bids.  If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds on the date of sale hereinbefore fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter, during which time no bids for less than the highest bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered.  No conditional bids will be considered.

Each bid must be enclosed in a sealed envelope addressed to the School Corporation and marked on the outside "Bid for General Obligation Bonds of 2010, Second Series".  A good faith deposit ("Deposit") in the form of cash or certified or cashier's check in the amount of $19,000 payable to the order of the School Corporation is required to be submitted by the successful purchaser (the "Purchaser") not later than 3:30 p.m. (EST) on the next business day following the award.  If such Deposit is not received by that time, the School Corporation may reject the bid.  No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser.  The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds.  In the event the Purchaser fails to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the School Corporation as liquidated damages.   

The successful bidder shall make payment to the bank selected by the Business Manager, as registrar (the "Registrar") for the Bonds and accept delivery thereof from the Registrar within five days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at such place in the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the successful bidder may designate.  The Bonds will be ready for delivery within 45 days after the date of sale.  If the School Corporation fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty-fifth day after the date of sale, the bidder may secure the release of his bid upon request in writing, filed with the School Corporation.  The successful bidder is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the SEC to make such Bonds depository-eligible.  At the time of delivery of the Bonds to the successful bidder, the bidder will be required to certify to the School Corporation the initial reoffering price to the public of a substantial amount of each maturity of the Bonds.

It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the successful bidder therefor to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its proposal.  No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the School Corporation or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers.  All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the School Corporation; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser.  The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds.

The approving opinion of TWPeterson Law Office, bond counsel of Indianapolis, Indiana, together with a transcript of the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the School Corporation.

The Bonds are being issued for the purpose to pay the cost of renovations and improvements to the infrastructure and technology at Brown County High School,  the renovation and equipping of the science/technology laboratory at the Brown County Junior High School and the design and development of four elementary school science classrooms, and will be direct obligations of the School Corporation payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the School Corporation; however, the School Corporation's collection of the levy may be limited by operation of I.C. 6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of the gross assessed value of that property.  The School Corporation is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits.  The School Corporation may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall.  Brown County Schools is a school corporation organized pursuant to the provisions of I.C. 20-4, and the Bonds will not be "private activity bonds" as defined in Section 141 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the School Corporation.  Interest on the Bonds is exempt from all income taxation in Indiana.  In the opinion of bond counsel, under the existing federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings, the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for purposes of federal income taxation.

The School Corporation has not prepared a preliminary official statement relating to the Bonds.  Further information relative to said issue may be obtained upon application to the Brown County Schools c/o Dr. Dennis Goldberg, 357 East Main Street, Nashville, Indiana 47448; (812) 988-6601, (812) 988-5403 (facsimile) or by e-mail to  HYPERLINK "mailto:Dgoldber@brownco.k12.in.us" Dgoldber@brownco.k12.in.us or to Educational Services Company, as financial advisor, c/o Ije Dike-Young, 3535 East 96th Street, Suite 126, Indianapolis, Indiana 46240; 317-663-4400; 317-663-4404 (facsimile) idike@govtconsultingserv.com.

If bids are submitted by mail, they should be addressed to the School Corporation, attention of Dr. Dennis Goldberg, 357 East Main Street, Nashville, Indiana 47448; (812) 988-6601, (812) 988-5403 (facsimile) or by e-mail to Dgoldber@brownco.k12.in.us
