Educational Proficiency Plans

District Created Templates and Related Documents

During the summer of 2008, nearly 60 districts used Academic Support Summer Enhancement Grants (Fund Code 625-B) to design Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP) templates and pilot them with Class of 2010-2012 students in Academic Support programs. Many used and/or modified the Department's EPP template and/or Mass Career Plan models, available on the Department's EPP website.

The page includes a sampling of these districts' templates and supporting documents. Brief descriptions are provided along with the district name, to differentiate one from the other. As with all such documents, these are not specifically endorsed or recommended by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. However, we share them here so that they may serve as helpful resources for other districts. If you have questions, please contact the Secondary School Services unit via achievement@doe.mass.edu or 781-338-3322.
