24/7 Technology Support
Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation has partnered with Ninestar Connect (https://www.ninestarconnect.com/) to offer technology support 24/7 for all students and families. Ninestar has been offering technology support to their own customers and now, in partnership with Mt. Vernon Schools has added support for Mt. Vernon students and families. Students and families can now call after school hours, weekends, breaks and anytime technology help is needed. Ninestar technology support representatives will provide Tier 1 support to help diagnose a problem. When the problem needs to be escalated to Mt. Vernon technology support, Ninestar support will contact a Mt. Vernon technology assistant to help resolve the problem.
