Meet your School Counselor

At MVCSC, we strive to engage, educate and empower our students and an active school counseling program is one important component of that effort. All FES students work with the school counselor on a regular basis through classroom guidance lessons.  These engaging and effective classroom lessons focus on character development, conflict, bullying, career readiness, and many other topics. Some students may also work with the school counselor on an individual basis or in a small group setting to focus on more specific and ongoing needs.


Mrs.Mrs. Krista Weber Krista Weber has been the school counselor at FES since 2017 and a member of the Mt. Vernon community since 2009. She is dedicated to meeting the needs of the whole child - academic, social, emotional, behavioral, and physical.  Please reach out to Mrs. Weber with any questions or concerns you may have:

Vernon Township Assistance

If you live in Vernon Township and are in a financial emergency situation, please see for details as they may be able to provide assistance. If a resident of McCordsville, Fortville or Unincorporated Area of Vernon Township needs financial assistance with utilities, rent, mortgage payment, essential medicine, or food, contact the township office at 317.485.7327 x1.
