  • Pathways & Partnerships

Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 is one of eight school districts selected to receive the Comprehensive Arts Planning Program (CAPP) award from Perpich Center for Arts Education.

CAPP provides assistance to selected public school districts as they design three-year, strategic plans for K-12 arts education programs including through workshops, site visits, leadership development and resource materials.

Superintendent Dr. Theresa Battle said: “CAPP is the vehicle for the district to align and enhance arts education, ignite student interest and engagement in the arts in new and unique ways, develop a cadre of arts leaders who can implement positive changes in arts programming, and support Arts Pathways that partner our schools and community. We’re excited to be selected to participate in CAPP.”

“We are incredibly excited to welcome [One91] to the Comprehensive Arts Planning Program for the 2021-2023 cohort,” said Kristi Johnson, CAPP Director at Perpich Center for Arts Education. “They join the over 200 school districts that have been served by the Comprehensive Arts Planning Program since its inception in 1983. CAPP success demonstrates that the effort of a broad-based district/community team is essential to the development of a sound and sustainable plan for arts education.”

Perpich Executive Director, Dr. Charles Rick, said, “Choosing the 2021-2023 CAPP Cohort was challenging given the robust field of candidates and the quality of applications; however, we are delighted with the eight chosen schools districts as they represent a cross-section of Minnesota’s state-wide arts education programming.
