Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 is a future-forward school district creating barrier-free pathways for learning for everyone in our community. We believe learning is a lifelong pursuit, and create programs, services and opportunities that inspire this belief.
We believe people thrive when they can bring their true self to the table. We champion individual authenticity and uniqueness, welcoming everyone without bias.
We believe our extraordinary learners can live their lives at the intersection of passion and purpose. Through a culture of innovation, students discover more about what they love earlier in life.
Through dynamic partnerships and community service, three cities become one vibrant community. We value opportunities to partner with people with different perspectives and unique experiences.
Our vision statement uses aspirational language to communicate our purpose — it’s the change we intend to make in the world.
We will be a school district that provides transformative learning experiences that mirror students’ own stories, and where students will:
Be equipped to meet rigorous academic challenges that build their capacity to pursue excellence.
Embrace the humanity of all people and welcome diverse perspectives and voices.
Be supported by a caring community that sparks their curiosity and fuels their progress down a self-determined path.
