    World's Best Workforce Plan 2022-2023

    In ISD 876 Annandale Public Schools, the full community of students, teachers, administrators, support personnel, parents and community members are driven to work together on the mission to empower learning experiences that inspire all to grow and achieve.

    Part of that work aligns with the Minnesota Department of Education's World's Best Workforce Plan. All public school districts are required to publish a report of the previous year's efforts to fulfill the district's plans.

    • What is the World's Best Workforce Plan?
    • World's Best Workforce Strategies, Support & Progress

    World's Best Workforce Report and Achievement & Integration Report will be presented on Monday, November 27, 2023, 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. All children are ready for school.
    2. All third graders can read at grade level.
    3. All racial and achievement gaps are closed.
    4. All students are ready for career and college. 
    5. All students graduate from high school.

    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 Jon Meinke at for historical information.

    Goal Setting

    Each district must set goals, develop strategic plans, report on progress through an online report in the fall 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 memberships are updated as possible.

    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 ESI-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.

    The state and district plans were revised in school year 2022-2023.  The new plan is the 2023-2026 Achievement and Integration Plan.
