Board Meetings

  • The Mount Vernon City School District Board of Education meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month, September through June to conduct the routine and necessary business of the Mount Vernon City School District. The Board of Education has a modified meeting schedule for the months of July and August.

    On occasion, the Board of Education may need to modify this schedule to accommodate a holiday or school closing. All changes are posted on the district's website.

    Special meetings can be called as necessary to address emerging and urgent matters.

    Meetings are generally held at the Mount Vernon City School District Education Center, 165 N. Columbus Avenue, Mount Vernon and are open to the public. 

    Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. If there is a need for an executive session, the President of the Board of Education will request a motion to enter into an executive session for a specific purpose or purposes at this time. The Board will make every effort to resume the public session by 7:30 p.m.

    The district will make every effort to ensure that board meeting agendas are available to the public the Monday before the meeting. Agendas, meeting minutes, and other Board of Education materials can be found on Board Docs
