Instructional: World's Best Workforce annual report
Every year, the Anoka-Hennepin School District publishes a long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning. Its main goal is to close the achievement gap between student groups by making sure all students reach the following milestones:
- Ready to start kindergarten;
- Proficient in reading by grade three;
- Prepared for a college or career path; and
- Set to attain their high school diploma.
Anoka-Hennepin reviews and evaluates their progress by:
- Each student's gains in state and local academic standards, including college and career readiness; and
- The effectiveness of instruction and curriculum.
As noted in the report, Anoka-Hennepin continues to create:
- Clearly defined district and school goals;
- Strategies for improving instruction, curriculum and student achievement;
- Practices that integrate high-quality instruction, rigorous curriculum, technology and a collaborative professional culture supporting teacher quality, performance and effectiveness; and
- An annual budget aligned to implementing the plan.
The district receives input for this work from the World's Best Workforce Advisory Committee, which consists of parents, students, community members and staff. For questions or information on how to get involved contact the district's curriculum, instruction and assessment department at 763-506-1066.
Additional achievement reports can be found on the research, evaluation and testing page.
