Welcome from District 196 Superintendent
Welcome to the website of Independent School District 196, the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Public Schools. I hope your visit is enjoyable and informative. I also hope this website gives you a sense of the quality, dedication and commitment to education that make District 196 one of the best school districts in the country.
Each day, the 3,500 employees of District 196 strive to achieve our mission of educating our students to reach their full potential.
We are a public school district with high academic standards and expectations, and a record of outstanding student achievement both in and out of the classroom. Our students consistently earn large numbers of scholarships, as well as state and national awards in a variety of curricular and cocurricular areas including science, literature, mathematics, student publications, speech and debate, world languages, athletics, music and the arts.
District 196 is committed to the idea of lifelong learning. In addition to our comprehensive k-12 program, our district serves residents of all ages - from infants to senior citizens - through Community Education programs that range from early childhood to adult education to programs for senior adults.
Information about all of these programs -- and more -- is here at district196.org. Stop back frequently for news and features about your public schools.
