World's Best Workforce

  • In a strategic effort to create the world's best workforce, the State of Minnesota passed legislation in 2013 requiring school districts to create a long-term strategic plan that is based on five core concepts:

    • Closing the achievement gap
    • All students ready for kindergarten
    • All students in third grade achieving grade level literacy
    • All students attaining career and college readiness before graduating from high school
    • All students graduating from high school

    This plan is called the World's Best Workforce, and it serves as a comprehensive plan that shows how current district initiatives and plans work together toward a common goal: to create a workforce armed with skills necessary for survival in 21st century careers.

    Along with a plan, legislation requires the district to publish an annual report documenting progress towards creating the world's best workforce. The most recent annual report is the World's Best Workforce 2022 Report.
