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.
