March 2019 Attendance Area Option Meetings & Survey
With the reconstruction and opening of Madison School in September 2019 and the closing of Lincoln School as an elementary school at the same time, the Mount Vernon School District has been developing new attendance area boundaries which will go into effective next school year. The boundaries determine which school students will attend based upon home address. Options for new boundaries have continued to be developed and will be shared at the school meetings in March.
