Content Standards

The Department of Education maintains State educational standards for Early Learning (Maine Early Learning and Development Standards, MELDS) and for grades PK-12 (Maine Learning Results, MLRs) in English Language Arts, Health Education, Life and Career Ready, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science and Engineering, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, World Languages.  Our goal is to provide all the necessary information on these standards, the review and revision process for the MLRs, and content-specific information & resources for each topic area contained within the MELDS and the MLRs.
