Welcome to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's website! We are committed to preparing all students for success after high school.
The Department's work includes licensing educators, distributing state and federal education money, helping districts implement learning standards, overseeing statewide standardized tests, monitoring schools and districts, and convening districts and individuals to share best practices. In addition, we collect data to inform state and local decisions. If you're interested in education, we invite you to join us in this work.
We welcome your ideas, feedback, and inquiries. Please feel free to send us your comments.
