Standards & Instruction

The World Languages Standards in Maine’s Learning Results: Parameters for Essential Instruction are closely modeled on the national foreign language standards, which provide further guidance and recommendations for world language programs in grades K-12.

All Maine publicly-supported schools are required to implement the World Languages Standards included in Maine’s Learning Results. In addition, student demonstration of achievement of these standards at the ninth through diploma grade span will be required as a component of every Maine student graduating with a proficiency-based diploma starting in 2018.
