Burnsville High to host college fair

The sixth annual college fair at Burnsville High School will feature representatives from more than 50 colleges and universities from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the gym at the main campus at 600 E. Hwy. 13, Burnsville.

Students in grades nine through 12 are invited to attend the free event, along with the public.

The event is sponsored by the school district and the Minnesota Association of Counselors of Color.

Gideon Pond named a Reward School

State Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius stopped by Gideon Pond Elementary in Burnsville to help celebrate the school’s status as a Reward School for the third consecutive year.

The designation is based on the school’s Multiple Measurements Rating performance, a Department of Education rating.

Reward Schools are those scoring in the top 15 percent in the state among schools that receive Title I funding, which goes to schools with higher numbers of students in poverty.
