• Distinguished Teacher Awards 2017-2018  DEADLINE EXTENDED to Jan. 19th!

    2017-2018 is the "Year of the Teacher" in the Mount Vernon City School District! The Board Trustees, Superintendent Hamilton and district administrators recognize that the efforts of our certified teachers need to be showcased and honored. Teachers are our "boots on the ground" front line soldiers, building up capacity, promise and possibility in our most precious commodity - our students.

    We have many outstanding educators in our District. We are asking for your assistance in identifying those amazing individuals whose brilliance, dedication, innovation and compassion for children make a true impact on the lives of our students.  You may self-nominate, or nominate a colleague...and we invite parents in the community to participate in this process as well!  Let us know whose contributions merit recognition!

    The Distinguished Teacher of the Year 2017-2018 awards ceremony will take place in April 2018 (in 2018-2019, we will open the nominations to Administrators and non-certified staff!).  This nomination process includes a systematic way of identifying and recognizing these important individuals.
