News - With referendum approval, changes coming to buildings, technology and learning

News - Voters approve both funding requests for Vision One91

Buildings for Learning  -  Technology for Classrooms

The Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Board of Education voted to place two funding questions before voters on Feb. 24, 2015. If approved, the funding will be used to implement Vision One91, a plan to redesign the school district to meet the needs of today's learners and ensure each student is real-world ready.

If voters approve both questions, the tax impact on the owner of an average home ($200,000) would be approximately $12 per month ($144 per year).
