  • 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:

    1. All children are ready for school.
    2. All third-graders can read at grade level.
    3. All racial and economic achievement gaps between students are closed.
    4. All students are ready for career and college.
    5. All students graduate 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 educate and prepare our students to be competitive and successful in a global and changing work environment.
