World's Best Workforce
All school districts in Minnesota are required to develop a comprehensive strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning. This plan addresses the following five goals:
- All children are ready for school.
- All third-graders can read at grade level.
- All racial and economic achievement gaps between students are closed.
- All students are ready for career and college.
- All students graduate from high school.
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. District 191 has a process in place to examine the equitable distribution of teachers and strategies to ensure low-income students, students of color, and American Indian students are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, ineffective, or out-of-field teachers.
While the full World’s Best Workforce (WBWF) plan is a multi-year strategic roadmap, each year, districts develop a WBWF Annual Report, engage in an annual public meeting with stakeholders, and release the annual report publicly on the district website. The annual report and annual public meetings are focused on the strategies and initiatives that the district engaged in to meet the goals and the progress made on those goals in the prior school year.
In District 191, the World's Best Workforce plan is intended to serve as a foundational plan that aligns our educational initiatives to ensure reaching intended student outcomes from pre-kindergarten to post high school graduation.
As part of the World's Best Workforce aspiration that all students in grade 3 are reading at grade level, District 191 has developed a Local Literacy Plan. The plan addresses literacy instruction for all students in grades K-5 with core instruction, supplementation intervention, and ongoing assessment to monitor progress.
