Listening sessions are hosted by members of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Board of Education at 5:45 p.m. before regularly scheduled board meetings during the school year.
The purpose of the listening sessions is to gather ideas, concerns, feedback and questions from our One91 community. Board members and the Superintendent value public input in the deliberations and decisions of school district matters.
At listening sessions, Board members or the Superintendent may ask clarifying questions or seek additional information but they will not make decisions.
How listening sessions work:
Please complete sign-in card and give to superintendent or designee.
Two Board members and the Superintendent will be present at listening session location from 5:45 pm - 6:15 pm. If no speakers submit a card by the beginning of the listening session, the session will be adjourned.
Board members will call on speakers, in the order that people signed up.
One person at a time will speak so everyone can hear.
Time is limited, so if you are coming as a group, please designate one spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group.
The facilitating Board member shall promptly rule out of order any discussion by any person, including School Board members, that would violate the provisions of state or federal law, Policy 206 or the statutory rights of privacy of an individual.
Personal attacks by anyone addressing the Board are unacceptable. Persistence in such remarks by an individual shall terminate that person’s privilege to address the School Board.
The Board can impose limitations and restrictions as necessary to provide an orderly, efficient and fair opportunity for those present to be heard.
Please be aware that listening sessions must end at 6:15 p.m. so Board members and the Superintendent can be in place for the start of Board meetings.
