Integrated Action Plan
During the 2019-20 school year, District 191 is taking major steps to help put the district on solid footing so it can best deliver on its mission of Each Student. Future Ready. Community Strong.
These steps will provide an integrated approach to addressing the district's challenges, including declining enrollment, chronic state and federal under-funding, schools/buildings that are operating under capacity, and perceptions of safety/student discipline issues, all while continuing its commitment to innovative programming through VisionOne91.
We believe that District 191 schools and programs will come out stronger for having taken comprehensive action. Components to this work include:
On Nov. 5, 2019, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 voters will go to the polls to decide whether to increase school funding. At its Aug. 19 meeting, the School Board unanimously approved holding a referendum to address budget shortfalls, simplify the district’s finances, and protect district’s program improvements.

Managing finances to ensure efficiency & seeking alternative revenue sources, including grants. Learn more about Finances and Budget.
The district is committed to continuing to innovate and improve academic and community experiences for all students. Since Pathways was implemented at Burnsville High School, enrollment in the district's 8th to 9th grade cohort has increased. This means there have been more students enrolled at BHS in 9th grade than were enrolled in one of the district's middle schools.
