The Mount Vernon City School District’s nearly $260 million proposed budget for the 2021-2022 school year holds the line on spending with a zero percent increase in spending from the previous academic year. To uphold its fiduciary responsibility, the District has identified more opportunities for budget efficiencies that include an increasing use of cooperative purchasing.

The Mount Vernon City School District is helping its youngest learners – the universal pre-kindergarten students – become inspired to be great pianists. The District has introduced live, but virtual, classes of piano lessons for pre-kindergarten students thanks to a mini-grant from the district. The funding came through the Office of School Improvement headed by Dr. Waveline Bennett-Conroy, Assistant Superintendent of School Improvement.
