Our curriculum, instructional methods, and assessment tools are built upon the Maine Learning Results and academic standards. These standards provide a set of clear expectations as to what students should know, understand, and be able to explain as they progress through each K-12 grade level.

The Maine Learning Results emphasize complex content and concepts and the development of needed real-world skills like problem-solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. 

For more information about MSAD 75 grade-level learning goals and course offerings please see our Learning Standards page.

District and State Assessments

Assessing student learning serves many purposes, ranging from measuring progress and identifying strengths and weaknesses to motivating students and guiding instructional strategies. Assessment results also play a crucial role in curriculum development.MSAD 75 uses assessments specific to the district and the Maine Comprehensive Assessment System (MECAS). The MECAS includes state assessments, known as the Maine Educational Assessments, as well as national and international assessments.
