On Wednesday, Dec. 23, USA Today published the Hechinger Report. Written by Laura Pappano, NY Times Reporter, the article highlights a select group of school districts across the country, including the MVSD, who are attempting to redefine how we measure student success – one student at a time.

When asked about the MVSD being featured in the report, Superintendent Venable stated, “I sometimes feel like a broken record, but it can’t be overstated… Student success takes many forms. It doesn’t happen alone. It is the product of many selfless individuals – staff, parents, and community members – working together in support of youth. As referenced in this article, it takes people like Suellen and Bill White, highly engaged community members, willing to mentor youth, helping them to see what they cannot always see in themselves.”
