World's Best Work Force

In accordance with Minnesota Statutes 2013, section 120B.11, a school board, at a public meeting, shall adopt a comprehensive, long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning that is aligned with creating the World's Best Workforce. Each district must develop an annual plan that addresses the 4 goals highlighted in section 120B.11. 

"World's Best Workforce" means striving to:  

  • Have all students meet school readiness goals;  
  • Close the academic achievement gap among all racial and ethnic groups of students and between students living in poverty and students not living in poverty;  
  • Have all students attain career and college readiness before graduating from high school;
  •  Have all students graduate from high school.  

Measures to assess progress must include at least:

  • Student performance on the National Association of Education Progress;  
  • The size of the academic achievement gap by student subgroup;  
  • Student performance on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments;  
  • High school graduation rates; and  
  • Career and college readiness under section 120B.30, subdivision 1.
