  • 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 students meet school readiness goals
    2. All students in third grade achieve grade level literacy
    3. Closing the identified academic achievement gap(s)
    4. All students graduate from high school
    5. 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 educate and prepare our students to be competitive and successful in a global and changing work environment.
