The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation is Now a 1:1 Computing District
All Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) students and staff have been immersed in a technology-rich environment with individual computer devices since fall of 2015. The 1:1 Digital Learning Initiative (one computer device to one student/staff) is a tool to motivate, engage, and challenge students to learn 21st century skills that will be an integral part of virtually every aspect of their daily lives.
Kindergarten through 12th Grade - Students will be provided a Dell Chromebook. Students are responsible for charging their Chromebooks each night and bringing a fully charged Chromebook to school.
Teachers will be engaged in frequent professional development activities on how to best use digital curriculum in the classroom throughout the school year during Delayed Start Wednesdays.

Mt. Vernon Student Internet Report for Parents
A new feature we have available to parents this school year (2019-2020) is the Student Internet Report for parents. Once a week parents will receive a summary of their child(ren) Internet activity for the week.
Student Internet Reports make it easy to share key information with parents and can see when the web is being used, top sites, top searches, and more.
We hope this assists parents and holds their child(ren) accountable for their activity on their Chromebook.
