2020-21 Budget

2020-21 Budget

District 191 is taking a values- and priorities-based approach to creating a budget for 2020-21. Tranformational work that has already been completed this year - including realigning facilities and a voter-approved levy - has helped put the district in a better - but still tenuous - financial situation.

Despite decreasing spending significantly in early previews of next year's budget, the district has still been able to provide funding to support its priorities, including: 

  • Funding for advanced learning specialists at each elementary school, a crucial part of the plan to establish each school as a “Pathways” school;
  • Additional spending to continue providing in-school access to mental health services for students;
  • Continued support for social workers, cultural liaisons, counselors and other student supports;
  • Continued support for Pathways at Burnsville High School;
  • A new schedule at middle schools to minimize transitions;
  • Ensuring pre-kindergarten classes are available at every elementary school; 
  • Investing in building-level equity teams, equity training for leadership and targeted professional development. 

Next steps

Board members received the final report on the 2020-21 budget at their April 9 meeting. The final budget will be officially adopted in June.
