We are inviting our future MVES kindergarteners to visit with us to see what MVES is all about!  Our future explorers will meet the connection teachers, the administrators, our kindergarten teachers, and will become familiar with our building.  Please help us spread the word to parents that are in the Mt. Vernon district and have children that will be attending kindergarten next year.  Our first meeting is Friday, March 14th at 8:00 in the media center.  We will be joining Mrs. Deweese for an introduction to art class.

A parent charter meeting for prospective students will be held for anyone interested in attending the Mount Vernon Exploratory school on Thursday, March 13th beginning at 5:30pm.  The meeting will be held in the media center. Students living within the MVES zoned district will be given first priority; those living outside the attendance zone may apply for admission. When applications exceed building capacity, a lottery process is used, and students are selected based on available space.  Parents of students who live outside the charter school’s attendance zone must provide transportation.

Timeline of the application process from  the Hall County Schools District:  For all other Elementary Charter Schools (except for WLA), applications are due by Monday, June 9, 2014. 

For all other Elementary Charter Schools, lotteries will be held June 10th-13th (June 10th for MVES).

Letters of notification will be mailed by June 16.  Parents will be asked to please respond by June 30.

The OAS enables students in Georgia’s public schools to access tests that consist of the same kinds of questions as appear on the state’s assessments in Reading, English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies in the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), the End of Course Tests (EOCT), and the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT). After taking an assessment, students can view reports aligned to the state curriculum that show instructional strengths and needs
