New furniture replaces old as middle schools receive upgrades

An upgrade long-planned as part of Vision One91 is finally taking place at middle schools, beginning this week in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.

While students are away on break, furniture that’s been in the schools for 30 years or more is being replaced with modern tables and chairs to create more flexible learning environments that will support new ways of teaching and learning similar to what is already in place at Burnsville High School. Vision One91 is a redesign of the district to meet the needs of today’s (and tomorrow’s) learners.

Chromebooks purchased to provide one-to-one for middle school students

Chromebooks are on their way to middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 this summer after the Board of Education approved the purchase that will provide one-to-one personal learning devices for all students in grades 6-8.  

Using funding provided by the Vision One91 referendum approved by voters in 2015, the District will purchase 2,100 Chromebooks from Best Buy Education, along with management licenses for all the devices and support in preparing them for student use.

Chess teams bring home hardware, including national title

Chess players from Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 came back from the national scholastic chess championships with more than a few trophies, among them a first-place title for the Burnsville High School U1200 team.

The team of Chance Persons, Samantha Stadick, Mark Huttman and Nikolas Slemp won BHS’s first national chess championship, competing in the U1200 rating category. Chance, a ninth-grader, finished 9th individually, while senior Nikolas took 16th.
