Burnsville High School will celebrate Decision Day on May 1

Posted on April 25, 2019

Seniors are invited to attend the Decision Day celebration Wednesday, May 1 in the Career Center.

Whether students plan on attending college or vocational school, joining the military, setting off to work, participating in BEST or taking a year off, this event is focused on celebrating all seniors and their plans for the future.

“Decision Day is celebrated around the country to recognize high school seniors for their postsecondary plans and encourage younger students and families to prepare early for life after high school,” said Marcia Sexton, coordinator of the Career Center. It coincides with the date that most seniors must confirm their plans to enroll at a specific college.

Students are invited to visit the Career Center in the afternoon to sign their grad caps, fill out their senior survey and finalize a transcript request. Students will also be encouraged to 'tweet' out celebratory messages about their college decision.

"Dr. Battle’s values align with our district’s, and her experience and skills, particularly in the area of equity, will help us deliver on our mission of ensuring each student is future ready and community strong,,” said Board Chair Abigail Alt. “We are grateful for the engagement of our community in this process. Now, we look forward to working with Dr. Battle to build on our vision for District 191 and take the next step forward for our students, staff and community."
