Letter to the Editor: Thank You for voting “YES” and Supporting Public Education
This November, the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District is giving thanks to the voters who approved a levy extension.
We, the members of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School Board, would like to say “Thank You” to the many residents of School District 191 who took the time to vote on Nov. 8 to renew an existing levy. We are grateful for your continued support. We also want to thank PTO members, parents, and others who helped educate voters about the importance of a positive vote for the students and families we serve.
The renewed levy provides continued funding that is vital to our day-to-day operations. Moreover, the public vote of confidence is uplifting — particularly during challenging economic times — to families with children in our schools, to our teachers and school staff members working hard to improve student achievement, to area businesses seeking skilled employees and to a vast majority of the residents in the communities we serve.
The vote allows us to confidently move forward with renewed dedication to our most important work – to improve academic achievement and prepare well-rounded students to be contributing members of society.
We, as your elected representatives, are committed to delivering the highest educational value for every tax dollar you provide. It is both an honor and a privilege to serve a community that places a high priority on public education.
Ron Hill, Dan Luth, Sandy Sweep, DeeDee Currier, Jim Schmid, Paula Teiken, and Bob VandenBoom
