  • District’s College Acceptance Rates Continue to Soar

    As graduation season draws nearer, we reflect on the academic achievements of the District’s 12thgrade students. Already, students have been accepted to top-tier colleges and universities such as Dartmouth, Fordham, Penn State, RIT, Syracuse, and UConn. Their college-readiness is, in part, due to the preparation and guidance they’ve received during their time as students in the Mount Vernon City School District.

Superintendent's Message

  • Dear Parents/Guardians

    The Mount Vernon City School District has been notified by the NYS Education Department that the Public School Choice requirement under the old federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation will not be required for identified schools in accountability for the 2018-19 and 2019-2020 school year. The public school choice is an option for those districts that choose to continue offering it in 2018-19.

    The Mount Vernon City School District will not be offering the public school choice option in 2018-19. Students who have previously transferred under public school choice will be allowed to remain in the school they transferred to until the highest grade in that school. Public school choice will be required in the 2020-2021 school year under certain conditions. As we near that year the district will provide parents which schools in accountability will be required to offer the public school choice option and the procedures to follow to access the option

    El Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Mount Vernon ha notificado al Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de Mount Vernon que el requisito de Opción de Escuela Pública bajo la vieja legislación federal Que Ningún Niño Se Quede Atrás (NCLB) no será requerido para las escuelas identificadas en rendición de cuentas para el 2018-19 y 2019-2020 año escolar. La opción de escuela pública es una opción para aquellos distritos que decidan continuar ofreciéndola en 2018-19.

    El Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de Mount Vernon no ofrecerá la opción de elección de escuela pública en 2018-19. Los estudiantes que hayan sido transferidos previamente bajo la opción de escuela pública podrán permanecer en la escuela a la que transfirieron hasta el grado más alto en esa escuela. La elección de escuela pública se requerirá en el año escolar 2020-2021 bajo ciertas condiciones. A medida que nos acercamos a ese año, el distrito les proporcionará a los padres las escuelas responsables que deberán ofrecer la opción de elección de escuela pública y los procedimientos a seguir para acceder a la opción.
