The summit, the first of its kind since the 2012, focused on promoting a common understanding of initiatives and terms, building an awareness of new learning approaches coming through K-12 and implications for institutions for higher education (IHE), beginning a dialog on use of Maine DOE assessments for IHE course placement, and building understanding of the college readiness standards within mathematics and English language arts.

Maine DOE joined in discussions to improve the coherence between PK-12 education and higher education experiences for Maine students.  Presentations were made by Rachelle Tome, Anita Bernhardt, Charlene Tucker, Michele Mailhot, Morgan Dunton, and Angel Loredo.
