Will free up space for middle school
By Josh Mitchell/Corinth Today
Construction is well underway on a new Kossuth High School building that will hold six classrooms.
The 7,000-square-foot building will house high school math classes and possibly some other courses, said Alcorn School District Superintendent Larry Mitchell.
The project may be completed at the end March and is being paid for with money the school district borrowed to make facility upgrades throughout the district.
Once students move to the new building, at least four classrooms will be freed up for Kossuth Middle School, which is tight on space, Mitchell added. The new building will start being used at the start of the next school year in August.
Up to $4.25 million was borrowed by the school district to upgrade roofs, bathrooms and other facilities.
Other projects include remodeling the Alcorn Central band hall and adding an ag/shop building at that school. Heating and air conditioning projects were also done at Kossuth and Alcorn Central gyms.
There are also plans for a multipurpose building with a storm shelter at Biggersville once federal funding issues are resolved.
