Teaching & Learning
The District 191 Assessment Plan is designed to ensure accountability. It uses multiple measurements (State and local tests as well as classroom assessments) to assess student achievement.
Curriculum development occurs in six phases: review, establishing core curriculum, instructional materials recommendation, piloting, implementation and professional development, and continuous improvement.
World's Best Workforce
All school districts in Minnesota are required to develop a comprehensive strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning. In addition to the academic goals, a key focus of the World's Best Workforce is ensuring all students have equitable access to excellent teachers.
Achievement & Integration
Through the Achievement & Integration Plan, District 191 and ISD 194 are partner districts aiming to pursue racial and economic integration and to increase academic achievement, create equitable educational opportunities, and reduce academic disparities based on students' racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds.
