What is WMEP's World’s Best Workforce Plan?
In accordance with Minnesota Statutes 2013, section 120B.11, a school board, at a public meeting, shall adopt a comprehensive, long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning that is aligned with creating the world's best workforce (WBWF).
The comprehensive strategic plan that districts create is intended to serve as a foundational document to align educational initiatives that serve to ensure reaching intended student outcomes from pre-kindergarten to post high school graduation.
WMEP strives to provide the best educational opportunities for all students. Providing an education to Minnesota youth that leads to creating the "World’s Best Workforce” means striving to do the following:
In order to create the world’s best workforce, it is imperative that academic achievement gaps are closed among all racial and ethnic groups of students and between students living in poverty and not living in poverty as well as for English language learners and non-English language learners and for students who receive or do not receive special education.
The West Metro Education Program will consider and use existing plans, documents and strategies that are already be in place and/or are required by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), such as the Title I Plan, Local Literacy Plan; Student Transition Plan to College and Career Readiness; Plan for Educator Effectiveness-Q Comp, and the Achievement and Integration Plan.
This district level strategic plan illustrates how the various existing district plans fit together and serve as a blueprint to promote equity, excellence and the arts to create a quality workforce equipped with necessary skills for the 21st century. WMEP's entire WBWF plan is attached below.
