MT. VERNON — Mt. Vernon Township High School administrators Tuesday gave a detailed mid-year report on the school's status in a number of key areas, such as grades, discipline and attendance. The report was delivered at a meeting of the MVTHS Board of Education.
Assistant Principal Rowdy Fatheree said the district is on track to meet its board goal of 94 percent attendance by the end of this school year.
Discipline referrals for disrespect and truancy are also down so far this year. However, the overall number of referrals are up. Fatheree said this increase may be related to more referrals for dress infractions in PE and cell phone violations, which are not as serious as disrespect and truancy referrals, he said.
In addition, Assistant Principal Rob Pipher reported that 85 percent of MVTHS students are getting A, B and C grades so far this year, which meets the board goal. Even so, the school's failure level is at 6 percent, which is 1 percent higher than the board goal.
