Mt. Vernon schools receive state recognition by the DOE

FORTVILLE — Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation has been recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as a school of Promising Practice in the area of international exposure to students. The district’s promising practice is one of 200 education programs to be recognized by the Department in honor of Indiana’s bicentennial celebration.

“We are proud to be recognized by the Indiana Department of Education for our efforts to broaden students’ world views,” said Dr. Shane Robbins, superintendent of schools. “There is much to be gained from learning about other cultures. The international focus Mt. Vernon is pursuing can provide multi-faceted opportunities for students and staff.”

These identified Promising Practices, like Mt. Vernon’s International Exposure, are student-centered and focus on positively impacting students through innovative programming and activities that provide a high-quality learning environment and experience. MVCSC’s Promising Practice of International Exposure to Students will be shared with educators across the state of Indiana as an example of best practices that are having a positive impact on Hoosier students.
