World's Best Workforce
State Legislation Outlines World's Best Workforce Goals
State legislation requires each school district to develop a World’s Best Workforce (WBWF) plan (state statute, section 120B.11). The plan is a comprehensive, long-term, strategic document that supports and improves teaching and learning. It aligns educational initiatives serving students from pre-k through high school.
The WBWF plan is based on five state goals:
- All students are ready for kindergarten.
- All achievement gaps between students are closed.
- All students in third grade can read at grade level.
- All students are ready for careers and college.
- All students graduate from high school
Roseville's World’s Best Workforce (WBWF) plan details how current district initiatives and plans work together to help create a quality workforce equipped with the necessary skills for the 21st century.
The WBWF plan must support and improve teaching and learning aligned with the World's Best Work Force goals and must include:
- Clearly defined student achievement goals and benchmarks.
- A process to evaluate each student's progress in meeting the state and local academic standards.
- A system to review and evaluate instruction and curriculum effectiveness.
- Practices integrating high-quality instruction, rigorous curriculum, and instructional technology.
- A collaborative, professional culture that supports teacher quality, performance, and effectiveness.
- Evidence-based strategies for improving curriculum, instruction, and student achievement.
- An annual budget for continuing the district's plan for implementation.
Under the WBWF legislation, the district will publish a report on plan results each fall, hold an annual public meeting, periodically survey stakeholders about their level of satisfaction with the school district, and submit an electronic summary of the report to the state commissioner of education. The World's Best Workforce Report replaces the state-mandated “Annual Report on Curriculum, instruction, and Student Achievement.”
