Office of School Improvement

  • Our Purpose:
    The Office of School Improvement provides leadership, support and technical assistance to schools by offering a wide variety of services and resources customized to meet specific needs.  The Mount Vernon City School District is dedicated to providing all students with the educational foundation necessary to succeed in school and in life. To ensure your child’s success, we have set high standards that are reflected in what is taught in our classrooms. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that adequate yearly progress (AYP) in language arts literacy and mathematics be measured annually for each school in the State of New York.

    We are very proud to announce that 14 of our schools are “Schools in Good Standing” by the NYSED Office of Accountability. We are ecstatic about the news and equally proud our principals, along with their teachers, students, and parents. In conjunction with this truly collaborative effort, we will continue to work hard and develop strategies that will keep us in this upward trajectory for years to come.
