Superintendent's Column

In 2023, in an effort to make public schools work better for everyone, leaders in the Minnesota State Legislature made it clear that education was a top priority and that they intended to take big steps, not little ones. They made good on that intention, and the results will have significant impacts on districts across the state, including Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.
