Bond issue to total $12.8M

$12.8 million school bond issue will be decided May 20 by voters in the Corinth School District.

The funds will be used for a reorganization that includes construction of a new Corinth Elementary School and the closing of three schools.

School bond issues require 60 percent approval to pass.

The school district also plans upgrades at the high school and junior high campuses.

School Superintendent Lee Childress said the new Corinth Elementary will house kindergarten through fourth grade. Corinth Middle School, which would be housed in the current junior high building, would serve grades five through eight.
