You are strongly encouraged to obtain a complete set of Curriculum Frameworks from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. They can be downloaded from their website https://www.doe.mass.edu/frameworks/current.html and they contain the state’s learning standards for each grade level. The frameworks can help you develop an appropriate Home Education Plan that should be transferable to any district in the state.
