Workforce and equity plans to be reviewed

Members of the District 196 Curriculum and Instruction Advisory Council (CIAC) will review the district’s 2015-16 World’s Best Workforce Plan Report Summary and 2015-16 Achievement and Integration Plan Progress Reports at their meeting on Monday, Nov. 7, 5-6:30 p.m., at the District Office in Rosemount. The public is welcome to attend.

The World’s Best Workforce Plan guides the work of the district to increase student achievement and fulfills planning and reporting requirements of state legislation enacted in 2013. The District 196 plan, called Our Learning Plan, includes updates on initiatives and programs, student assessments, district and school goals and achievement results, school profiles, answers to frequently asked questions and information about the district’s strategic work in the areas of teaching and learning, early learning, equity and partnerships.

The Achievement and Integration Plan guides the district’s work in pursuing racial and economic integration, increasing student achievement, creating equitable educational opportunities for all students and reducing academic disparities based on students’ diverse racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds. District 196 developed its first Achievement and Integration Plan in 2005, after the state designated two of the district’s elementary schools as “racially isolated” for having enrollments of students of color that were more than 20 percent higher than the elementary average in the district at the time.

For more information about the Nov. 7 CIAC meeting or the reports that will be reviewed, call Director of Teaching and Learning Steve Troen at 651-423-7884.
