New classroom walls at Eagle Ridge support current learning needs

Like fashion, school designs change with the times, and at the time Eagle Ridge Middle School was built, open classrooms were all the fashion.

Now, though, open classrooms can be considered disruptive, as sound travels from one area to another, and a security concern. This summer, as part of Vision One91 facility upgrades in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, Eagle Ridge addressed those issues with the installation of classroom walls, windows and doors throughout the school.

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.
