Education

 
  • What is a Board of Education?

    The Board of Education is the official policy-making body of the school district, and is comprised of nine members, elected by the public, who serve three-year terms of office without paid compensation. 

    The areas of Board responsibility include:
    • Exercising educational leadership and drafting policies for the effective operation of the Mount Vernon City School District.
    • Employing the Superintendent of Schools
    • Confirming appointments of administrators, teachers and other district staff members
    • Setting goals for educational standards
    • Adopting a yearly budget and authorizing certain expenditures
    • Expressing and representing the views of the community in matters affecting educational programs and needs of the community.
     
    The Board of Education works in concert with the Superintendent of Schools and his cabinet to discharge these varied and necessary responsibilities.
