RE: High School Transition - Proficiency-Based Graduation & Reporting

Welcome to Mt. Ararat High School.  My hope is that the content provided on this webpage will be helpful to you and your children as they transition to the high school and our district transitions to a proficiency-based system of learning and reporting.  

All children anticipating graduation in the year 2021 and beyond, will be in required to demonstrate proficiency on the MSAD No. 75 graduation standards in order to be eligible to receive a diploma.  The links on the right of this page will connect you to resources associated with this transition.

Please use the following link to submit your questions and comments to support continued work with families as we transition to a proficiency-based system of learning and reporting:
