EVHS Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Information- Required Meeting For Those Interested

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows highly motivated 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level courses. With traditional PSEO, these courses are generally offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. The cost of tuition, course fees, and textbooks is covered by the Minnesota Department of Education.

We will be hosting a required PSEO information session for any current 10th and 11th grade student interested in pursuing PSEO for the 2023-2024 school year on any of the following dates/times:

March 7th at 2:40pm in C250

March 8th at 7:10 in C250

March 8th in the counseling office during your lunch

Students should still register for a full year of EVHS classes for the 2023-2024 school year even if they plan on taking PSEO classes. The MN State Department of Education deadline for notifying EHS about your intention to participate in PSEO is May 30th.

Rugby registration is open for our Girls and Boys high school teams.

Our Varsity Girls are looking to defend their State Championship, and our Varsity Boys are continuing to rebuild after our 2021 State Championship and once again expect to compete at the top.

NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. In rugby, everybody plays, everybody carries the ball, and everybody tackles. Rugby suits all body shapes and sizes, and teaches explosiveness, decision-making, and agility. Rugby is the only spring sport that teaches safe and highly effective tackling to improve HS football player performance and avoid injury. We are an ISD 196 club sport, meaning Varsity players may earn their letter.

Practice begins on March 1st (8:30PM @TCO Dome-Lakeville North) and the season runs through the end of the school year. More information, including registration links, may be found at https://www.eaasports.org/rugby. Interested players are also welcome to reach out to our Eastview Liaison, Physical Education teacher Tifani Sadek.


Anyone who missed the boys volleyball informational meetings can talk with Coach Dehnel to get information for the season and the pre-season workouts and open gyms. He is usually in C250 before school and the boys locker room office after school, or email him at ryan.dehnel@district196.org

District 196 Moving Forward with May 9 Bond Referendum Election: Two-Question Special Election Addresses District’s Facilities and Equipment Needs

District 196 School Board on Monday unanimously approved a resolution calling for a two-question bond referendum election on May 9, 2023, to address the district’s facilities and equipment needs for the next 10 years and beyond.

That was the recommendation of the administration and members of a Facilities and Equipment Steering Committee that conducted a comprehensive review of the district’s facilities and equipment needs over the last year and a half. The committee developed a facilities master plan and recommended the first phase of improvements to address needs in the areas of safety, security and supervision; space for growth, and providing students and families a more consistent experience in facilities across the district.

The proposed improvements were presented as preliminary recommendations at the Nov. 14 School Board meeting. They were then presented for public input during three nights of focus group dialogues in November, and online via a form on the district website. Learn more.

Do you need fee assistance?

Fee assistance is available for District 196 residents. Apply online or call 651-423-7920.
