The Maine Department of Education has just released a new video on their efforts to transition to personalized, proficiency-based education. This is a delightful, inspiring, informative video on the interdisciplinary academies (innovation, ecology and international) at Troy Howard Middle School.
Also check out Maine’s new website Getting to Proficiency: Helping Maine Graduate Every Student Prepared. It’s designed to provide technical assistance for districts and schools that are getting started in proficiency-based education. It’s a model for other states who are starting to put together introductory materials for their districts. Be sure to check out the planning tool.
