The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation asked ALL MV parents, any in-district residents, businesses and community members to be a part of the “MV Community Champions” fall initiative to develop Mt. Vernon's 10-year Future Growth Plan. MVCSC asked hundreds of community members to attend two meetings from 7 - 8 p.m. on August 27, 2019 and January 21, 2020. At the first meeting, over 300 attendees throughout the Mt. Vernon community shared their thoughts on the multiple options of growth possibilities, including how grade configurations are assigned in our schools.
Attendees were invited to stay after the January 21 meeting for a "Town Hall Q&A" with Superintendent Dr. Parker. Also, babysitting was available for the 7-8 p.m. meeting. See details in the news article HERE.
The special MV Community Champions that signed up and attended the two meetings received continual information about the development of MVCSC’s Future Growth Plan. A separate advisory committee researched information gleaned from the August meeting and helped to refine ideas for the second MV Community Champions meeting in January. At the March MVCSC School Board meeting, a 10-year Future Growth Plan was presented to the School Board for review; unanimously, the Future Growth Plan passed.
MVCSC greatly appreciates the 300+ community members that came to voice their opinions about the future of MVCSC in August, as well as our advisory committee for their investment in helping to develop our Future Growth Plan. The advisory committee and MVCSC values the community's opinions and will use them to improve upon our growing district. Thank you for contributing to the future of Mt. Vernon!
