    NOTE MEETING CHANGE:  World's Best Workforce Report and Achievement & Integration Report will be presented on Monday, November 26, during the Annandale Public Schools board meeting at 7 p. m.  All people are welcome.

    What is the World's Best Workforce Plan?

    World's Best Workforce is the Minnesota Department of Education's name for a plan that addresses 5 achievement goals.  Each district is required to share a World's Best Workforce report for the previous school year.  

    The ISD 876 Annandale Public Schools World's Best Workforce Report includes documents that detail a district’s progress toward achievement of the Minnesota Department of Education’s 5 goals:

    1. improving Kindergarten readiness.

    2. achieving universal literacy by third grade.

    3. reducing achievement gaps.

    4. preparing all students to graduate college- and career-ready.  This means adult life ready--prepared for whatever further education and career decisions a student chooses. 

    5. meeting a 100 percent high-school graduation rate.

    Since some available information from the current school year may be more important to you right now it will be preferred over the past school year.  This will include items such as Parent Staff Advisory members once the committees are updated and current testing requirements.  Contact Kathy Holahan at kholahan@isd876.org for historical information.

    Goal Setting

    Each district must set goals, develop strategic plans, report on progress through an online report by October 1 of each year, and hold an annual public meeting to review progress.

    Each school invites parents and community members to join school staff in Advisory Councils. Councils set goals and review goal achievement progress and strategic plans to support progress. All parents and community members are invited to attend.  The advisory meeting membership will be updated in fall 2018.

    Goals Linked to WBWF Outcomes

    Early Childhood Preschool Objectives

    Annandale Public Schools has established Early Childhood Preschool Objectives to guide preparation for kindergarten. Annandale Preschool developed early childhood objectives based on the Minnesota Early Childhood Indicators of Progress. This Pre-K desired results developmental profile is completed throughout a school year for each child in our program.  This profile is given to the Kindergarten team to review.

    Teachers rely on two screening measures supported by the Minnesota Department of Education: the ES!-R, Early Screening Inventory-Revised, 2008 Edition and an Ages and Stages Questionnaire.  Early childhood staff members work in partnerships with community programs and local daycares to reach and encourage families to participate in screening of their children at 3 years old.  Screenings can be scheduled during the child's preschool day.  Marketing efforts feature mailings, promotional materials, and use of social media.   

    All Students in Third Grade Achieving Grade-Level Literacy

    Elementary Literacy Goal (aligned with Q Comp goal) is based on the RtI Framework (Response to Intervention) for literacy as documented in our District Literacy Plan. This tiered approach allows us to reach all students based on defined data and interventions in place within our elementary school.

    2018 state testing data will be updated with official results by early fall of 2018.

    Third grade MCA-III/MTAS-III Reading proficiency scores have been steadily improving: 2015 - 56.6%, 2016 - 64.2%, 2017 - 66.2%, 2018 - 69.8% for students enrolled by October 1 in the school year.   

    Goal - The MCA-III/MTAS-III Reading proficiency goal for 2018 for grades 3-5 Annandale Elementary School students enrolled by October 1 was 75.6%.  The MCA-III Reading proficiency score was 74.3% for all students and 74.7% for students enrolled by October 1, 2018.

    Closing Achievement Gaps

    Achievement and Integration Plan--Annnandale Public Schools participates as an Adjoining District in an Achievement and Integration Plan with St. Cloud Public Schools, a Recially Isolated School District.  This association with St. Cloud and other surrounding districts offers our students financial support for interventions and experiences with students in another district.

    The state and district plans were revised in school year 2016-2017.  The new plaln is the 2017-2020 Achievement and Integration Plan.

    Specific yearly goal statements assigned by the Minnesota Department of Education and results for 2016 Achievement & Integration Results are linked in the Strategies, Support & Progress page.

    Q Comp Goals for 2018 MCA-III Reading/MTAS-III proficiency for students enrolled by October 1 for the school year were:

    Annandale Elementary School grades 3-5 - goal 75.6%

    All Students Graduate

    All Annandale High School students in danger of dropping out or not completing graduation requirements on time werel tracked by the high school administrative team, and individual interventions were applied in accord with the student’s individual needs.  Graduation rates for a graduation year are delayed.  The Minnesota Department of Education reported the graduation rate for 2016 by the fall of 2017.
