At the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation's Board of Trustees Meeting on October 1, 2018, a resolution was passed to not accept new transfer/out-of-district students. This resolution is effective October 1, 2018 through June 1, 2019 for students in preschool through grade 12. The Board of Trustees is passing this resolution due to the in-district housing growth that is impacting the Mt. Vernon schools.
Currently enrolled transfer/out-of-district students and their siblings, foreign exchange students attending through a contractual relationship, and employees' children, are exempt from this resolution and may attend school at Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC).
The transfer/out-of-district student resolution will be reevaluated each spring. Out-of-district parents/guardians who are interested in having their child(ren) attend Mt. Vernon should contact the school after April 2019 to see if the MVCSC School Board of Trustees has chosen to modify or keep this resolution the same for the following year.
MVCSC administration meets quarterly with the economic development representatives from the county and all three towns in our district to assess housing growth and developments. This information helps Mt. Vernon assess and prepare for future growth.
