Colleges & Proficiency Based Diplomas

Graduation 2012

Over the past year I have had the opportunity to talk to many parents and students about RSU18’s move to proficiency based education.  In multiple venues including parent nights, student assemblies, home room discussions, book-talks, conferences, and the curriculum night – one message has come across loud and clear – “What does this mean for college?”

Competency Works columnist Chris Sturgis recently shared an insightful post about the progress made regarding collegiate endorsements of Proficiency-Based Diplomas.   Our goal at MHS is to support all learners in the transition to a proficiency based educational system.  We do not want to take steps that will disenfranchise our students, so we are working with all stakeholders to ensure their voices are heard and positions are represented throughout implementation.  I encourage anyone interested in learning more to join us at our next event, contact me directly, or schedule a time to come in to talk.

Additional information related to work going on in Maine can be found on the Great Schools Partnership and Maine Cohort for Customized Learning websites.
