District schools show strong growth in elementary reading and among English learners

Nine out of ten District 191 elementary schools equaled or outperformed the state average when it comes to student progress on state reading tests in 2019, and on average, English learners at each elementary school showed greater progress toward English proficiency than the state average. 

“It shows that we are having success taking students where they are and supporting their growth,” said Imina Oftedahl, the district’s director of curriculum, instruction and assessment. 

MCA results reflect need to continue changes

Results from the 2016 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA), taken by students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 last spring and received on July 26, showed a slight increase in math proficiency and steady proficiency rates in both reading and science.

At most grade levels, District 191 results were below state averages. However, improvement in certain pockets shows support for the changes the district is working to implement through Vision One91 and other initiatives.

MCA results show need for changes being implemented

Results from the 2015 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA), taken by students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 last spring and received on July 27, mirrored statewide results with math scores generally lower than in 2014 and mixed results in both reading and science.

Overall, at most grade levels, District 191 results were below state averages, supporting the need for many of the changes being implemented through Vision One91 and last spring’s voter-approved referendum.
