High School Diploma Requirements

The 123rd Maine Legislature established a stakeholder group to review curriculum requirements and standards for awarding a high school diploma.  The group was established by legislative resolution (LD 2174). The group began meeting in August 2008 and is scheduled to complete its work November 25, 2008, when it will present final recommendations to Commissioner Gendron. She will review the recommendations and determine appropriate next steps for implementation.
