  • Governor Pence Appoints Dr. Maryanne McMahon to the State Board of Education

    Governor Mike Pence today appointed Maryanne McMahon to the State Board of Education, effective immediately. McMahon will fill the vacancy created by the departure of Sarah O’Brien. McMahon will serve the remainder of O’Brien’s four-year term, which expires on June 30, 2019.

    “Throughout her career as an educator, Maryanne McMahon has distinguished herself as an innovative leader who works hard advancing the best interests of students, families and teachers,” said Governor Pence. “In her new role with the State Board of Education, I know she will continue her pattern of public service for the good of all Hoosiers.”

    For 17 years, McMahon has worked for the Avon Community School Corporation in Hendricks County in various administrative posts. Most recently, she has served as assistant superintendent – a role in which she secured math and science partnership grants with Purdue University worth more than $500,000, helped lead an efficiency task force that saved the district $350,000 and spearheaded efforts to give greater voice to parents through the Avon Parent Partnership Committee. Previously, McMahon worked for Decatur Township Schools in Marion County as a classroom teacher, assistant principal and consultant for staff development in the areas of curriculum and instruction. McMahon earned undergraduate, education specialist and doctoral degrees from Indiana State University. She also holds a master’s degree from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and an administrative certification from Butler University.

    Today, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz announced ten finalists for 2017 Indiana Teacher of the Year. The selection of the 2017 Indiana Teacher of the Year will be announced in October.

    “Everywhere I go, I see great teaching and learning happening in Hoosier classrooms,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Great teachers can have a lifelong impact on a child’s life. I am honored to recognize ten of these outstanding educators today who have demonstrated their commitment to high-quality instruction and service to Hoosier students.

The 2017 Indiana Teacher of the Year will represent Indiana teachers at the national level in accordance with National Teacher of the Year guidelines.

    The 2017 Indiana Teacher of the Year finalists are:

    Michelle Burress (Plainfield High School); Bobbi Jo Carter (Frankfort High School); John Gensic (Penn High School); Dennis Goins (Ben Davis High School and Area 31 Career Center); Jarod Hammel (Huntington North High School); Chris Hill (Avon High School); Mikayla Koharchik (Zionsville Middle School); Jessica Deckard Mann (Mishawaka High School); Jitka Nelson (Logansport Community High School); and Jennifer Jo Steed

A Message from Superintendent Hoernemann

Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!Hoernemann

I want to extend a heartfelt welcome to our families and students as we begin the 2016-17 school year. Our doors will open on July 27, 2016, to more than 9,300 students in 12 school buildings. The entire staff (including principals, teachers, school bus drivers, food service workers and custodians) is committed to providing a fabulous learning environment for our students.

We are pleased to welcome staff administrators Brad Bates (Assistant Principal at AIS-East) and Dr. Scott Wyndham (Director of Finance and Operations).With retirements and life changes, approximately 50 new teachers will join Avon Schools.

Did you know that you can track your child’s school bus? ACSC families can use Here Comes the Bus – a website and mobile app – to view the real-time location of your child’s school bus. You can also receive push notifications or email alerts regarding bus changes and/or delays. For the first time this year, Here Comes the Bus is offered as a FREE service to parents. Details can be found on the ACSC Transportation web page at

Please get involved early and stay involved in your child’s learning environment. Open dialogue with your child’s teachers is important and helps to ensure that his/her educational needs are being met.

Continuous communication is a key component – you will hear from us often and information will be available via newsletters, school websites, parent portals and social media sites.

Together we are going to have an amazing year of growth and learning experiences. I look forward to another successful school year.
