Curriculum Frameworks
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE/ESE) periodically convenes groups of educators to write and/or update curriculum frameworks for various content areas.  These frameworks set end-of-year expectations (standards) for students in each grade level.  The frameworks and their standards identify what students should know and what students should be able to do by the end of a school year. 

The table below provides direct access to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for each of the listed content areas.
