The conference sessions will focus on the four keys to success of middle school as identified by the National Forum which include:
- Academic Excellence: Challenging all students to use their minds well.
- Developmental Responsiveness: Being sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence.
- Social Equity: Being democratic and fair, providing every student with high-quality teachers, resources, and supports.
- Organizational Structures and Supports: Sharing a vision and promote a learning community of practice.
NCMLE’s Annual Conference is recognized as one of the nation’s premier conferences for middle-level educators. If your school works with early adolescents in grades five, six, seven, or eight, then you won’t want to miss this event!
The conference typically draws educators from across North Carolina and over a dozen states and several countries. We hope you’ll join us in March to learn, network and share.
