The Mount Vernon City School District is asking parents and guardians to confirm their child’s instruction choice by August 7 with our Back-to-School Opt In/Out of Onsite Instruction Confirmation Survey.
The Mount Vernon City School District Board of Education voted recently to promote two of its veteran assistant principals to permanent principal positions. Both Jacqueline D. Green and Marc A. Molina are natives of Mount Vernon, products of the school district and graduates of Mount Vernon High School. Both positions became effective in July.
At the July 7, 2020 Board of Education meeting, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jeff Gorman presented reopening plans for the upcoming school year. The reopening plans are guided by three main principles: The health and safety of staff and students, guidance from state officials and health professionals and their impact on revisions to the presented plan, and mental and social emotional wellness to drive the plan into action.
We are writing to provide a status of our school reopening plans for September and collect parent feedback with a brief survey. Reopening plans will be announced in the next two weeks so parents can plan accordingly. We appreciate you taking the time to complete and submit a brief survey to assist the District in planning for the reopening of schools in the fall. If you have multiple children in the district, you only need to complete one form.
Parker’s motto is “Parker Pride-Nothing Less Than Excellence”. Teachers enhance their pedagogy through engagement in a continuum of academic learning of the most current methodologies and learning trends in education. Common Core standards-based instruction, consistent training in technology, and professional development in student data management are just some of the opportunities provided to teachers.
Through our on-site Parent Resource Center workshops and School-based Leadership Team efforts, our parents, grandparents, caregivers, and retirees collaborate to create classrooms of scholars who engage in rigorous challenging academic curriculum. We persistently seek community members and leaders to inspire and motivate our children to excel in all areas.
