Superintendent Dr. Jack Parker has scheduled three “Traveling Talks” throughout the Mt. Vernon community in 2023. These “Traveling Talks” are an opportunity for community members to communicate directly with Dr. Parker and share their hopes, questions, and/or concerns about Mt. Vernon schools. This casual dialogue is designed to connect the community with school leadership.
All five schools in the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation have earned a Highly Effective Schools Accreditation from Solution Tree. This accreditation is a significant achievement that reflects all five schools’ commitment to learning and maintaining the highest levels of educational quality. Mt. Vernon High School, Mt. Vernon Middle School, Fortville Elementary School, McCordsville Elementary School, and Mt. Comfort Elementary School earned this accreditation by driving permanent, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement.
The Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Fortville Elementary School (FES) and the Transportation Building was held on November 30 and began with a welcome from Superintendent Dr. Jack Parker.
