It is hard to believe that another school year is coming to a close. I want to thank the Mount Vernon community and parents for all of their help making the 2017-18 school year a huge success. We could not do it without all the volunteers and mentors that come into our buildings every day.
We have many events for students next week and we invite all of you to come and join us for the recognition programs. The 2018 graduation will be on Friday, May 25th starting at 7:00 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. Also, throughout the summer, we have many sports camps and activities for students.
Summer time will bring many improvements and projects. We have our HVAC construction ongoing at West, Marrs, and the high school, in addition to the various roofing, painting, gymnasium floor sanding, and fencing projects occurring throughout the district.
On June 4th and 5th we will host a technology conference at our high school and junior high that will bring approximately 300 participants from three different states to learn about new technology usage in the classroom. This is one of the largest summer conferences across the state.
Our office is open during the summer Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call (812) 838-4471. We will update our Facebook pages and web pages throughout the summer with dates and times of future events.
Again, thank you for all of your support and I hope everyone has a wonderful summer!!!

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.
