  • Mastery Based Learning (MBL) Guidelines

    At their regular meeting on June 3, 2015, the State Board of Education adopted the Connecticut Mastery Based Learning Guidelines. As directed by the Connecticut General Statute 10-221a, the Connecticut State Department of Education developed Guidelines for Mastery-Based Learning (MBL) as a resource for school districts. The MBL guidelines provide guiding principles around Community Engagement, Policy, and Practice. The guidelines are not rigid requirements, but are instead recommendations/advice to assist district and school leaders implementing Mastery-Based Learning models. The guidelines can drive the development of high-quality implementation plans across the state. While the critical components of Community Engagement, Policy and Practice should be taken into consideration by all, the guidelines respect that each school and district has unique needs, specific capacity, and availability of resources that will inform their implementation journey.
