PBE Information

What is proficiency-based education?

Proficiency-based learning refers to systems of instruction, assessment, grading, and academic reporting that are based on students demonstrating that they have learned the knowledge and skills they are expected to learn as they progress through their education.

Is Scarborough making this change?

Scarborough Public Schools is making the change to PbE because we believe that this system has the potential to revolutionize our schools. By focusing on student growth and mastery of specific skills, we can foster a sense of efficacy in students. Students educated in models that focus on growth show greater problem-solving skills and engagement in learning.
