MV Community Passes Referendum
The MV CommUNITY is STRONG!
The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation commends our entire community for their engagement and support of the $.17 operating referendum. Mt. Vernon will be able to maintain our programming and low class sizes. The referendum funds will also be allocated to hire more school resource officers so each building will have security presence and the high school will have two officers. In addition, our teachers’ salaries will increase and our classified staff pay will increase to a more competitive level. Our Operations Fund will be sustainable as the referendum funds will help replace the loss of our 10-year increment funds.
Superintendent Dr. Parker states, “We are grateful and humbled by the support of our amazing community. Because of our great community partnership in supporting our students, we will be able to maintain the trajectory of academic excellence in our schools. We have had some great conversations throughout the last number of months and met some wonderful people who we found share our loyalty and love for our community. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Mt. Vernon staff, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our greater community for their support of our schools and the students they serve.”
Continued school transparency and communication will be shared with the community through newsletters and opportunities to get involved with Mt. Vernon.
