I would like to take this time to “WELCOME” everyone to the 2018-2019 school year. All of the schools are open and we are enrolling students. The construction that occurred over the summer, for the most part, has been completed. We have a few areas that still need some finishing touches, but overall it has been a hugely successful project. In the summer of 2019, we will be doing construction on Farmersville and the junior high. I want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these changes.
Also, if you have been through Mt. Vernon over the last few weeks, you have noticed a tremendous amount of road construction on Fourth Street. Again, I ask for everyone’s patience as our buses travel throughout the community. I appreciate all of your help in ensuring everyone’s safety during the year.
We have many events beginning shortly and we welcome everyone to come to the schools and support our students. We thank all the businesses and individuals who donate freely of their resources, time, and talents to provide our students with the best opportunities possible.
If you have any questions, concerns, or just wish to pass along information, please contact your student’s school office and they will put you in contact with the proper person. We all want children to succeed and we must work together to make sure that happens. If my office can help you in any way please give us a call at 812-838-4471.

The Metropolitan School District of Mt. Vernon is dedicated to providing a safe, caring, positive, cooperative, pleasant, and challenging learning environment with high expectations for all students. Every school has its own home-school advisors, counselors, and nurses. Students in our district have access to a full array of services for special needs students, as well as programs for special needs students, as well as programs for coping with behavioral, social, academic, or other life stressors.
Driving the achievement, the MSDMV sits at the forefront of cutting-edge technology-based education. Technology is heavily integrated into the instructional process across all grade levels. State of the art hardware, infrastructure, applications, and software presented by tech-savvy teachers allows each student to have unique, real-world experiences that combine the use of technology with basic skills instruction. As a result, our students experience higher levels of engagement and academic achievement. Currently, our school district has a 1:1 technology initiative in place at MVJHS and MVHS, with plans to expand to all grade levels.
MSDMV is proud to have highly qualified, responsive teachers and results oriented administrators. The staff of MSDMV firmly believes two-way, open communication and maintaining positive parent-teacher-student relationships. Our district is focused on professional development and continued growth of all students and staff. Furthermore, the recognition of student and staff achievement is a priority in our schools. In addition to a strong social media presence on Facebook, MSDMV and its students and employees are committed to on-going community involvement.
