Fortville Elementary School (FES), McCordsville Elementary School (MES) and Mt. Comfort Elementary (MCE) recently celebrated the month of racing by hosting "Kindy 500."

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.
