World's Best Workforce

The World’s Best Workforce Plan (state statute, section 120B.11) is a comprehensive, long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning with the ultimate goal of creating the world’s best workforce. It is intended to serve as a foundational document that aligns educational initiatives that serve students pre-k through high school.

It is based on five beliefs:

  • All students are ready for kindergarten*
  • Close the achievement gap
  • All students in third grade achieve grade level literacy*
  • All students attain career and college readiness before graduating from high school
  • All students graduate from high school*

* Not applicable to district’s plan 

MIMS’s World’s Best Workforce Plan serves as a blueprint that demonstrates how current district initiatives and plans work together in a concerted effort to create a quality workforce equipped with the necessary skills for the 21st century.

The plan is in conjunction with the “Annual Report on Curriculum, instruction, and Student Achievement”.  In accordance with Minnesota Statute (state statute, section 124.D10 subd. 14.) a charter school must publish an annual report approved by the board of directors. The annual report must at least include information on school enrollment, student attrition, governance and management, staffing, finances, academic performance, innovative practices and implementation, and future plans.

The plan must support and improve teaching and learning that is aligned to the World's Best Work Force and includes:

  • Clearly defined student achievement goals and benchmarks
  • Process to evaluate each student's progress toward meeting the state and local academic standards
  • System to review and evaluate the effectiveness of instruction and curriculum
  • Practices that integrate high-quality instruction, rigorous curriculum, instructional technology
  • Collaborative professional culture that support teacher quality, performance and effectiveness
  • Evidence-based strategies for improving curriculum, instruction and student achievement
  • Annual budget for continuation of the district plan's implementation

Under the legislation, the district will publish a report on plan results each fall, hold an annual public meeting, periodically survey constituencies about their level of satisfaction with the school district, and submit an electronic summary of the report to the state commissioner of education.
