Maine Academic Standards and Guidelines

What are the Maine Academic Standards and Guidelines?

When the Maine State Legislature adopted the Learning Results in 1996, it established learning standards for all Maine students educated at public expense. These grade span (PK-2, 3-4, 5-8, and 9-12) standards in career preparation, English language arts, health and physical education, mathematics, modern and classical languages, science and technology, social studies, and visual and performing arts identify the knowledge and skills essential to prepare Maine students for work, for higher education, for citizenship, and for personnel fulfillment. In addition, grade level expectations in reading and mathematics for grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 were developed in 2003-2004 and guidelines for early childhood were published in March of 2005.

Example Academic Standard: Grades 3-8 Mathematics

Numbers and Operations: Read, compare, order, classify, and explain whole numbers up to one million.
