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 a 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" at 8 p.m. 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 sign up and attend the two meeting will receive continual information about the development of MVCSC’s Future Growth Plan. A separate advisory committee will research information gleaned from the August meeting and help to refine ideas for the second MV Community Champions meeting in January. At the March MVCSC School Board meeting, a 10-year Growth Plan will be presented to the School Board for review.
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 our Future Growth Plan, we look forward to seeing you at the next meeting on January 21, 2020!
