Parents, as part of the new construction at Everest, we have new security fences along Mini Drive that will help keep unauthorized trespassers off the MIT campus. The new fences run from Omega all the way around the corner next to Widenmann Elementary, up to the baseball field. These fences will enhance security and prevent trespassers from using the Everest facility (and Omega) as a short cut, which has been a significant MIT security problem. And while this new addition will significantly improve campus security, students and parents should be aware of the following:

MIT Academy Standards-Based Grading Policy

Dear Parents,
 
On this report card, you’re going to see something a little different – a standards-based score in addition to a grade (or in some cases a class percentage). This represents MIT’s move towards standards-based grading, which is generally considered “best practice” in the education industry in general, and in cutting edge schools in particular. Although many schools use standards-based grades, MIT is one of the few secondary schools doing it, and once again represents MIT’s commitment to being an educational leader.

A Letter to Our Parents and Students

A LETTER TO OUR PARENTS & STUDENTS
from Matt Smith, MIT Academy Director
 
Many of you may have seen Friday's article in the Vallejo Times-Herald regarding VCUSD suing MIT Academy to stop construction on the new construction on the Everest and E-Building complexes. The reporter, John Glidden, did a good job on the article but was unable to include my complete comments, so here they are in their entirety:
 
"Yes, the district has been pursuing litigation against MIT Academy all summer long. It's a shame, really, because we asked for mediation and the district chose a legal route first, despite our lease agreement explicitly calling for mediation as a preliminary step in any conflicts over our the agreement.
