A Message from our Superintendent



Dear Community,

With the 2013 - 14 school year well underway, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on our district’s accomplishments.  Mooresville Graded School District continues to be a lighthouse district for other schools across the nation embarking on their own Digital Conversion.  I am extremely proud when other districts visit and their representatives tell me, “We came to see the computers, but we are leaving realizing it is about so much more.  It’s about heart.”  I have to tell you...that is exactly right.  The reason we are considered a lighthouse district and have such success is because our outstanding teachers, administrators, support staff, and community have heart. We all have a collective spirit for doing what is right for every child, every day! 

This year we are busy working through a transition from the state’s previously used curriculum, standards and tests to the newly mandated ones.  In November we received our 2012 - 13 North Carolina end-of-year testing results. While we did experience a significant drop in the number of students testing proficient, MGSD was still 13 percent above the state average and had the third highest percentage of students in the State of North Carolina testing proficient.  There are other indicators of the strong academic education Mooresville Graded School District offers.  One such indicator was our four-year cohort graduation rate for 2013.  This past school year, it increased yet again from 90 percent up to 93.4 percent, second in the state.

While we realize we have significant work to do with the new state standards, Mooresville Graded School District remains committed to excellence.  There is no doubt in my mind that our teachers, students, and Mooresville family will rise to the occasion.  While the bar has been raised, we accept the challenge and will continue to inculcate a culture of caring for and believing in each and every student so that they have the tools necessary to clear that bar.  

Thank you for your continued support.  Mooresville Graded School District could not experience this success without you! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Mark Edwards
