Town Hall Meeting

The Vernon Township School District will be holding a Town Hall Meeting on Monday, July 27th at 6:30 p.m. in the VTHS Cafeteria. Masks/face coverings must be worn.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic the Vernon Township School District was projected to lose $10 million dollars in state aid. That fact has not changed and in fact the pandemic may have further negative impact on school district funding.
The purpose of the Town Hall meeting is to hear from our community stakeholders about preserving programs that you feel reflect the Core Values of our Vernon students’ needs and family expectations. This is open for staff, students, parents and community members. It will be hosted by Ms. D’Avino and Dr. McKay.
If you are uncomfortable attending in person or are unable to, please join us via zoom:
