School district seeks to provide digital access

Mount Vernon ISD took another step forward to provide digital accessibility for all students during a special called school board meeting at noon on Monday, August 3.

When the COVID-19 pandemic closed schools in March, the district scrambled to provide remote learning for all 1,550 students. Administrators learned that 23 percent of students, who responded to a survey, did not have reliable internet access.
