Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 has received a positive review and comment from Minnesota Commissioner of Education Brenda Cassellius regarding proposed construction that is part of the Vision One91 referendum.
Under state law, proposed school projects over $2 million for building and/or remodeling facilities must be submitted to the Commissioner of Education for review before they can go before voters. The commissioner has 60 days to review and issue a positive, negative or unfavorable evaluation about the educational and economic advisability of the project.
“This stamp of approval allows Vision One91 to more forward,” said Superintendent Joe Gothard. “The next step is Election Day on Tuesday, Feb. 24.”
Vision One91 is a plan to redesign the school district to meet the needs of today's learners and ensure the district’s mission of Each Student Real-World Ready.
The review and comment statement included a description of the proposed project and how it would be financed as well as other details. The entire 76-page document is on the district’s website at www.isd191.org/referendum under “Resources.”
