Buildings & Grounds
The Mount Vernon City School District Facilities Department maintains a physical environment that is comfortable, safe, secure, accessible, well-illuminated, well-ventilated, and aesthetically pleasing that helps teachers and students focus on teaching and learning. In addition to the structures and building systems such as electricity, plumbing, security and fire-suppression systems, the school facilities include furnishings, materials and supplies, equipment and information technology, as well as various aspects of the building grounds, including athletic fields, playgrounds, areas for outdoor learning, and vehicular access and parking.
A well-maintained school facility is integral to providing an environment that fosters a love of learning and exploration. The layout and design of each facility uniquely contributes to the experience of students, educators, and community members. Our facilities directly contribute to a sense of ownership, safety and security, personalization and privacy while also promoting social interaction.
