The tragedy in Florida reminds us all of the importance of safety and security in schools. We want to assure our families that all of our schools have updated school safety plans that have been created/reviewed in collaboration with local law enforcement. The members of our staff have been trained on the specifics of this plan, and we conduct periodic drills to ensure that everyone knows their role during a crisis. Our district also has a specific protocol for entry to our schools, and we appreciate the understanding of our parents as we enforce these protocols for the safety of our children. The safety of our students remains our highest priority.

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.
