Learn about new middle schools being developed in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 during three upcoming information sessions.
As part of Vision One91, beginning with the 2016-17 school year, the district’s current junior highs with grades 7-9 will change to middle schools with grades 6-8. Middle schools are being designed to meet the social, emotional and academic needs of this specific age group.
Information sessions are:
- Tuesday, Jan. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at Metcalf Junior High, 2250 Diffley Road, Burnsville
- Thursday, Jan. 7, at 6:30 p.m. at Nicollet Junior High, 400 E. 134th St., Burnsville
- Monday, Jan. 11, at 5:30 p.m at Eagle Ridge Junior High, 13955 Glendale Road, Savage
All three meetings will follow the same format and provide the same information on ways students will benefit from the changes. First there will be an overview of what the new middle schools will be like including scheduling, programming and expanded opportunities. The discussion will also include information about the expanded use of classroom technology. Each session will have a question and answer time.
