Future Growth Plan
8.2025 - The new Fortville Elementary School opens for the 2025-2026 school year. The old Fortville Elementary School is changes back into an intermediate school serving grades 5 and 6. This configuration pulls the 5th grade out of the elementaries and the 6th grade out of the middle school, creating more capacity in all four buildings.
3.2024 - The Transportation Center opens.
11.2023 - The new road around campus that connects SR 234 & CR N200W is completed.
11.2023 - The new drive for the Mini-Marauder Preschool is utilized for drop-off/pick-up.
8.2023 - Mt. Vernon Middle School drop-off/pick-up utilizes a new drive around the track.
11.2022 - Groundbreaking of the new Fortville Elementary School.
10.2021 - The current Fortville Elementary School serving K-5 expanded to add a fifth grade wing. This expansion will serve future students when the building reverts back into an intermediate school with grades 5 and 6.
The growth Mt. Vernon is expecting provides an opportunity to plan and ensure what is needed for students to learn and grow during their school years. The proverb “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today” holds true for the Mt. Vernon community today. Let’s be sure that in 20 years the Mt. Vernon community continues to thrive because of our decisions made today.
11.2022 Groundbreaking for the new elementary school commenced.
1.2021 The MVCSC Board of Trustees voted 5-0 to build a new elementary school at the January meeting. The motion also included the plan to borrow another elementary architectural plan that will end up saving the district approximately $500,000. Next, leadership will provide the MVCSC Board of Trustees with options on locations, building plans, finances, maximizing the use of current buildings, and much more.
12.2020 Mt. Vernon enrollment requires three elementary schools. The dual track was the option of whether to renovate the current administration building into an elementary building or build a new elementary school.
Both tracks were thoroughly analyzed. MVCSC has a specific focus through the Future Growth Plan to balance the needs of the growing district with the financial stewardship of resources.
Mt. Vernon invited the community to attend Zoom presentations in December of 2020 regarding the Dual Track of the Future Growth Plan. Community input was greatly appreciated and is a vital component prior to the MVCSC Board of Trustees making the decision on which track to pursue.
1.2020 The Mt. Vernon Community Champions and the Mt. Vernon Community Champions Advisory Committee recommended the reinstatement of an intermediate school to house grades five and six. This will provide room for growth in the three elementary schools and the middle school by removing an entire grade level cohort from each school. This plan also includes reusing Fortville Elementary School for the purpose it was built, that of an intermediate school. A dual track, that is, renovating the existing administration building into an elementary school or building a new elementary building, were thoroughly researched and analyzed.
8.2019 In the 2019-2020 school year, the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation asked ALL MV parents, any in-district residents, businesses and community members to be a part of the “MV Community Champions'' fall initiative to develop Mt. Vernon's 10-year Future Growth Plan. Over 300 community stakeholders shared their opinions about Mt. Vernon's growth at an August presentation.
12.2018 The Mt. Vernon demographer’s report predicted enrollment to grow 50% by 2029; essentially, to grow from 4,000 students in 2019 to 6,000 students in 2029. While MVCSC is happy to be growing and providing new opportunities for students and staff, a Future Growth Plan was needed to make sure the MV buildings grow along with the student population. Mt. Vernon’s three elementary schools house grades kindergarten through grade five.
