District Self-Assessment

The Maine Department of Education and the Great Schools Partnership developed a comprehensive self-assessment process for Maine school administrative units to support action planning for proficiency-based learning at the district and school levels. The self-assessment process and criteria were informed by the experience of several school districts in Maine and New England that have successfully designed and implemented proficiency-based learning systems.

After completing the self-assessment, respondents can examine their individual and collective responses to help them determine what they may have already completed, which steps they need to address and what specific resources and guidance are available to support their planning and activities.
