South Washington County Schools is sharing its 2014-15 World's Best Workforce Summary Report through the interactive infographic below. Click on the items within the infographic to learn more about the various topics.

The team responsible for reporting on the World’s Best Workforce 2014-15 has worked to combine the traditional requirements of the annual report on curriculum and instruction, reporting on the district’s strategic plan, Pathway to Excellence, and the requirements of the World’s Best Workforce Report Summary.

The strategic plan remains the guiding document for the school district. The World’s Best Workforce Summary Report is a document that continues to be reviewed and updated and aligns to the strategic plan.

This summary includes progress toward improving teaching and learning and striving for the World’s Best Workforce, specifically progress toward: 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 (once data is received from the state); and all students graduating from high school (once data is received from the state).

An additional requirement of the state of Minnesota’s World’s Best Workforce Legislation is a public meeting. The district has set Tuesday, Nov. 24 as the opportunity for the public to hear an update on the World’s Best Workforce in District 833. This public meeting will take place from 4-5:30 p.m. at Cottage Grove Elementary School in the Media Center. Updates have been provided throughout the year to the School Board and community.
