Corunna Public Schools hosted an open house on Wednesday evening, Sept. 27 to showcase the improvements that have been made to district educational facilities. The school district was delayed until Tuesday, Sept. 5 in starting the 2017 school year because of ongoing construction work. Superintendent Dave Moore had issued a statement in the first week of August, explaining that contractors were still completing projects following the approval of a $16.5 million bond proposal by voters in November 2015.

Some of the improvements to Corunna High School included a new roof, reconfiguration of both the main and guidance offices, repairs/resurfacing of the gym floor, new bleachers, new tile, carpet, a new phone system, new boiler, upgrades to exterior lighting, a handicapped parking lot, and the replacement of all hallway lockers. Corunna Middle School saw the installation of steel roofing on the peaked portion of the structure, a new gym floor, technology infrastructure upgrades, improved exterior lighting, and more. Some upgrades to Elsa Meyer Elementary included a new fire alarm system, new drinking fountain, new flooring, and a new bus approach and drop-off area with an expanded parking lot. Other district improvements were new front doors for Nellie Reed Elementary, a new bus, a new track surface and interior fencing, redesigned tennis courts, along with renovations to Louise Peacock Children’s Services.
