If you have any questions please contact Mike Szady @ 812-882-2005.

I would like to address two items that pertain to the Vincennes Community School Corporation (VCSC) as both center around the community.

First, a huge and sincere thank you to the many Vincennes Lincoln fans who traveled to Southport to support the Alices in semi-state play for boys’ basketball.  Southport has the 10th largest gymnasium in the State of Indiana and clearly the “green and white” filled half the gymnasium.   The City of Vincennes did not leave too many people at home that Saturday as the community support for Lincoln was readily visible and incredible.

In terms of our basketball team and program, congratulations to Coach Hein, his staff and our basketball boys, they made all of us proud.  We thank them for an amazing journey, winning the Big 8 Conference title, becoming Sectional and Regional Champions, and only missing playing for the State Championship by one game.

I would be remiss if I did not comment on our cheerleaders, student body and in general all of our fans.  As I left Southport Saturday night, I was stopped by one of the School Resource officers for Perry Township Schools (Southport HS) and he wanted to relay to me that he had worked many games in the gymnasium in the area of the student section and our students were well behaved and truly represented their community in a positive manner.  This reflects well on our students, our cheerleaders and our fan base as a whole.

The entire experience made me proud to be the Superintendent of the VCSC and a member of this community.  I know the VCSC Board of Trustees join me in this sense of pride and in thanking all those who participated.

The second item I would like to address pertains to the community and their support of discussions regarding our elementary schools that will begin this week.  The time has come for an open and transparent dialogue with our stakeholders.  Stakeholder being defined as any and everyone who has a child or student in the VCSC, this includes parents, grandparents and other family members who are raising a child or student.  We also include our students and staff in these discussions.  The VCSC directly and indirectly employs 450 employees making us one of the largest employers in Knox County.  The VCSC has nearly 2,700 students.  The primary group which constitute the largest majority of our stakeholders are the taxpayers within Vincennes/Knox County, this group allows the VCSC and the other taxing entities to exist.

In terms of the discussion with our community/stakeholders, a series of five community forums have been scheduled as follows:

            Franklin Elementary, Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 6:30PM

            Tecumseh-Harrison Elementary, Monday, April 6, 2015 at 7:00PM

            George Rogers Clark Middle School, Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 6:30PM

            Vigo Elementary, Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 6:30PM

            Riley Elementary, Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 6:30PM

These initial discussions will be informal as we come together to share information regarding our current elementary schools.  This information will include items that we know need to be addressed within each elementary building as well as our ability to finance these projects should the community be supportive.  The VCSC is in a unique position as we are scheduled to retire the debt on Lincoln High School in December of this year and this gives us the ability to take on additional projects which will not increase the tax levy.  We have seen the academic success for our students at George Rogers Clark Middle School as they are finishing their fifth year in the “new” building and it is time for the VCSC to make a commitment to our elementary schools as each of the four buildings have clear and apparent needs.  These meetings are to open a dialogue with the community regarding these needs and to hear and learn the desires of all our stakeholders, with regards to the VCSC’s elementary schools.

The VCSC has attempted to be as flexible as possible with dates for the forums, but for those who cannot make one of the five forums and would still like to participate, an online forum is being set up via social media.  The VCSC technology department has arranged via social media to report items as they are stated publicly at the forums, as well as allowing stakeholders via social media to ask questions.  The link to participate via social media is:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/VCSC-Curriculum/479010665581190. A list of common questions and answers can be found here. Pictures of the schools can be found on that school's website.

Please join us for at least one of these forums, even if it is via social media.  Should any of our options pose an issue for an individual who desires to participate, I would encourage you to reach out directly to me and you can do this by phone (812-882-4844) or by e-mail parsleyg@vcsc.k12.in.us (Please note that some e-mail addresses become blocked by the VCSC’s exchange server as spam, so if you do not get a response via e-mail from me within two days, please call.)  Our Board of Trustee Members are also accessible and welcome dialogue and feedback.

Please join us and we look forward to the community conversation!

Sincerely,

Greg Parsley

Superintendent
