The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) is pleased to share that the Mt. Vernon High School and McCordsville Elementary School are among those recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as Indiana’s Four Star Schools for the 2017-2018 school year.
In order to receive a four star designation, a school must obtain an “A” on Indiana’s A-F accountability scale and have excellent pass rates for ISTEP. There were 234 schools that received this honorable designation.
“Receiving designation as a Four Star School reflects academic excellence among students, educators, and the administration,” says Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I am honored to recognize these Four Star Schools for their hard work and dedication in preparing their students for a bright and prosperous future.”
MVCSC’s Superintendent, Dr. Jack Parker, shared, “In my short tenure here I have learned many of the positive accolades Mt. Vernon has received, but I am exceptionally pleased with this announcement. Please congratulate these students and staff for their outstanding work in receiving this achievement.”
