Proficiency-Based Diplomas

January 31, 2015 - Maine Education Association Board of Directors Position on Proficiency-Based Diplomas

The MEA opposes Proficiency-Based Diplomas until such time as the following are addressed:

  • adequate time for development, including input and feedback by local educators;
  • adequate resources for development,
  • adequate planning provided to this public school initiative; and
  • inequities incurred by the expectation that all students will meet all standards regardless of individual strengths and challenges, particularly students receiving special education services and/or English Language Learners (ELL).
