    About our district

    Formed in 1888, Corning Union Elementary School District encompasses 170 square miles in Tehama County and borders Glenn County to the south.  The territory of the District is located in the southern part of Tehama County and includes the City of Corning and adjacent unincorporated areas.  The City is situated about 115 miles north of Sacramento, the State Capital, and about 15 miles south of Red Bluff, the County seat and home of the world famous Red Bluff Round-up.  Population for the City of Corning is approximately 8,000. Corning Elementary is one of the top three major employers for the Corning area. 

    The District underwent a reconfiguration of grades beginning with the 2004/2005 school year, creating four-neighborhood kindergarten through fifth grade schools and one middle school. A few years later, after a year-long study that included staff, administrators, community members and a County Office of Education facilitator, the Board recommended moving 6th grade back to the elementary level creating three kindergarten through sixth grade elementary schools, as well as creating one kindergarten through eighth grade school and one middle school with grades seven and eight.  As the District continues to grow, the configuration of the schools has evolved with West Street and Rancho Tehama sixth grade students being moved to Da Vinci Academy.  Olive View and Woodson Elementary's configuration remains the same with grades K-6 and K-8 respectively.
