Corinth schools to seek funding

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — The Corinth School District plans to apply to the Mississippi Department of Education for qualified school construction bond funding that remains available from the federal stimulus programs.

The Daily Corinthian reports that the school is planning a new round of building projects focused on improvements at the high school and middle schools.

Superintendent Lee Childress says the district seeks up to $5 million and has a list of projects totaling an estimated $6.2 million.

Childress says not every item on the list would be completed.

The list includes a planned softball facility plus various repairs and renovations.
