LD 1422 requires that all high school students graduating in 2018 will earn adiploma diploma based on proficiency instead of credits. High school administrators and teachers, district by district, are grappling with the many challenges this requirement presents.

Hosted by the USM School of Education and Human Development Advisory Council, the two hour program is a continuation of the conversation from last fall. This event will feature staff from area high schools who will share their work towards developing a proficiency-based diploma. After a brief overview, participants will have an opportunity to spend 30 minutes with each high school team. School teams will share progress and challenges followed by a questions and answer period.

 Presenters include:

  • Chris Howell, Principal, and Windham High School Team
  • Lori Lodge, Curriculum Director, and SAD 57 High School Team
  • Derek Pierce, Principal, and Casco Bay High School Team


Contact hours will be available.

*Net proceeds benefit the endowed USM School of Education and Human Development Community Scholarship Fund for student scholarships.
