Visual and Performing Arts Programs and Initiatives: Maine Educational Programs and Initiatives:
  • Education Evolving: Maine's Plan for Putting Learners First. The Department's strategic plan that sets out objectives and action steps for building an education system in Maine that meets the needs of all learners, from early childhood into adulthood, and prepares them for college, careers and civic life.

The Maine DOE provides technical assistance, resources and guidance for school districts to implement the proficiency-based diploma and to do so in a way that promotes student learning and achievement of the Maine Learning Results.
  • Maine Learning Results. The Maine Learning Results were most recently updated in 2011 to include Common Core as the standards for math and English language arts, better preparing our students for success in college, career and civic life by creating deeper, more rigorous and clearer expectations for learning.
