Learning & Teaching Overview

      • Shaping Teaching and Learning Through Curriculum, Assessment, Technology, and Professional Development

        The foundation for teaching and learning within the Sartell-St. Stephen School District is rooted in our mission to "develop well-rounded citizens capable of becoming successful and contributing members of society by providing outstanding instruction in a welcoming environment where every student is given the support needed to excel according to their unique abilities, interests, and aspirations.”

        Implementing a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum involves planning, teaching, assessment and data analysis. Sartell-St. Stephen Schools prides itself on curriculum that is developed and refined on a continuous cycle. Elementary and Secondary Content Area Specialists, under the leadership of Building Principals and the Assistant Superintendent, guide staff in an on-going process of aligning curriculum, instruction, and assessment to Minnesota State and National Standards.

        Preparing students for the future means building a 21st Century skill set that is integrated across all learning areas.

      World's Best Workforce

      • In 2013, the Minnesota legislature adopted what is referred to as the World's Best Workforce (WBWF) legislation, section 120B.11. This legislation requires that 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.

        What is the World’s Best Workforce?

        The WBWF bill was enacted to ensure every school district in the state is making strides to increase student performance. Each district must develop a plan that addresses the following five goals:

        1. All children are ready for school.
        2. All third-graders can read at grade level.
        3. All racial and economic achievement gaps between students are closed.
        4. All students are ready for career and college.
        5. All students graduate from high school.

        More information about the World's Best Workforce can be found on the Minnesota Department of Education's website.
