Seven new and cool things for 2018-19

We hope you're getting excited for the new school year - we sure are! Here are just a few of the new things happening in 2018-19 around the district. 

1: College-credit classes for future teachers

Burnsville High School seniors will be able to take two education courses and earn seven college credits through Normandale Community College, all without leaving the high school.

Registration for high school, middle school fall sports is now open

Registration for fall athletics for the 2018-19 school year is now open in FeePay.

All middle school offerings are limited to middle school students; however, high school offerings are open to students in grades 7-12, pending evaluation during tryouts.

Athletic offerings for fall include:

Middle School (Grades 6-8)

  • Boys soccer
  • Girls soccer
  • Girls tennis

Fee: $105

High School (Grades 7-12)

Gifted program position, some middle school athletics added back to proposed budget

At its May 24 meeting, the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Board of Education heard a plan to reinstate a gifted program position at Harriet Bishop Elementary, as well as middle school wrestling and tennis programs as part of the proposed budget for 2018-19.

The two items had been marked for elimination, with middle school sports combining with high school programs, in an original proposal presented earlier this spring. The proposal to create combined middle and high school (grades 7-12) cross country and dance programs is still in place.

Academic calendars set through 2019-20

Families that like to plan ahead will be able to do so now that the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Board of Education has approved academic calendars for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years.

Both calendars follow the general pattern of recent academic calendars for District 191, with school starting the day after Labor Day and ending in early June. However, there will no longer be a week-long fall break, with conferences being set in November, instead. Both school years still feature a week-long spring break in March.
