A New Online Volunteer Application System is now live! The Mount Vernon School District policy requires all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Application prior to volunteering in the schools.
We encourage parents and community members to volunteer by working in classrooms, through assistance with activities and by chaperoning on field trips. Field trip chaperones must complete their application at least 2 weeks prior to the trip.
Please visit https://mountvernonvolunteers.myschooldata.net/ to start your Online Volunteer Application.
Volunteer service is vital to the success of our schools. The District's Volunteer Program invites parents, grandparents, students and community members to help make a difference in our schools.
