The 2013 Minnesota Legislature passed a law that changed the school district process for reviewing curriculum, instruction and student achievement.
The World’s Best Workforce Plan (Minnesota Statutes, Section 120B.11) is intended to serve as a foundational document that aligns educational initiatives that serve students pre-K through high school. The plan replaced the state-mandated “Annual Report on Curriculum, Instruction and Student Achievement."
The World’s Best Workforce legislation is based on five goals:
- All students meet school readiness goals
- All students in third grade achieve grade level literacy
- Closing the identified academic achievement gap(s)
- All students graduate from high school
- All students attain career and college readiness before graduating from high school
The Westonka Public Schools World’s Best Workforce Plan serves as a blueprint that demonstrates how the district’s current strategic plan and supporting district initiatives and plans work together in a concerted effort to create a quality workforce equipped with the necessary skills for the 21st century.
