Educational Proficiency Plans
The Massachusetts Board of Education adopted the Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP) requirement into regulation in October 2006. The change to the Competency Determination (CD) required for high school graduation, beginning with the Class of 2010, was made to increase the likelihood that graduates of Massachusetts high schools have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in college and the workforce.
Spring 2021 Update: For the class graduating in 2021, The EPP requirement is being suspended in 2021 but will be needed again for the class of 2022 after their first testing opportunity, which will be in spring 2021. There will be no EPP MCAS mathematics test this spring. The Department encourages seniors to maintain a course of study that will adequately prepare them for post-secondary opportunities in the fall.
