Legislature passes the Science and Social Studies Standards The MN Legislature passed the Science and Social Studies Standards for K-12 schools. These are now available on the MN Department of Education website . Thanks to everyone who commented on the lack of environmental concepts in the original draft science standards. The Department of Education released the top 8 "Most Common Criticisms" and critique #8 was "Important environmental concepts are not addressed in the science standards." As a result the department has added some environmental concepts. While these additions have strengthened the standards and we appreciate the environmental inclusions, the standards are not perfect. We are interested in hearing your thoughts and comments on the new version. Please send us your thoughts as soon as possible by

GWDC: School-to-Work Presentation The state agencies, higher education institutions, local education agencies and minnesota educators must increase their marketing efforts of the Graduation http://www.gwdc.org/handouts/stwpaper.html
Extractions: Youth Development Committee, Governor's Workforce Development Council Purpose The Minnesota School-To-Work Initiative and the Minnesota Graduation Standards While both initiatives had been the dream of many individuals and discussed for years, Minnesota stated direct planning in 1993 with legislative action and funding. Both have been strengthened in each subsequent legislative session, and both have been designed with broad-based participation of business organizations, educators, students, and citizens throughout the state. Both initiatives have been guided with extensive local involvement and have been "tried out" in pilot projects through grants. Both initiatives are results-based rather than time-based. These initiatives insist on inclusion and success of "all" learners. These are education reform initiatives that will allow educational system changes. The High Standards provide an advanced and rigorous challenge in virtually all subject areas. Learners will demonstrate their achievement by completing a series of projects and exercises designed to show that they could apply their knowledge and skills to 10 learning areas. The areas in the Profile of Learning include: 1) Read, Listen and View; 2) Write and Speak; 3) Artistic Applications: 4) Mathematical Applications; 5) Inquiry; 6) Scientific Applications; 7) People and Cultures: 8) Decision-Making: 9) Resource Management; and 10) World Languages. These areas, with the application, task management, and critical/creative thinking skills are necessary to complete the performance assessments required by the high standards.

Extractions: Every year Minnesota accepts thousands of immigrants and refugees from all over the world. This year, 2004, is no exception. Minnesota is estimated to increase it's population by 70,000 people. In 2003, the United States Department of State decided that they would allow resettlement of the Hmong refugees that live in the Wat Tham Krabok in Thailand. There are an estimated 15,000 refugees who live at this site. Minnesota is ranked second in the nation (45,443) of total Hmong population. The city of Saint Paul is ranked first (26,509) in the nation of total Hmong population. This created a unique situation here in Minnesota. Due to the large number of Hmong families that live in Minnesota and because Minnesota is a "family reunification state" (this means only refugees who have family relatives who live in MN can sponsor them to come live in MN), there was a probability that many of the refugees who lived in Thailand would end up here in Minnesota.

Extractions: Are you a property owner, civic booster, amateur historian or city planner? Do you work in tourism, on community events, with your town board? Or do you simply have a favorite local landmark that disappeared in the name of progress? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then you have a stake in protecting and preserving your community's resources. Among Minnesota's most important resources are historic properties. They range from farmhouses to courthouses, flour mills to iron mines, park shelters to petroglyphs. These properties tell us stories about ourselves. They reflect what we value and how we've chosen to live. They add richness and diversity to our urban and rural landscapes, reminding us of our past and helping us to define our future. The State Historic Preservation Office: Your Partner in Preservation Each state has a historic preservation office, established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, that spearheads state preservation intiatives. Together with the National Park Service, they also administer a national preservation program. Surveying the Scene To identify Minnesota's historic properties, SHPO carries on a continuous survey program.
