Mount Vernon ISD plans to start classes August 6

The Mount Vernon ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved changing the start of the 2020-2021 school year to be Thursday, Aug. 6.

Teachers will still report August 3 as originally planned, but students will fill classrooms three days later instead of the original date of August 17. “I believe our best plan would be to add additional days of instruction at the beginning of the school year,” Superintendent Dr. Jason McCullough told board members.
