Making Middle School Matter Symposium
March 1-2, 2021 (Mon-Tue) | VIRTUAL

This program is for ALL Middle-Level Educators - teachers, counselors, administrators, and central office administrators.


The 5th Annual Making Middle School Matter Symposium is open to all middle grades administrators and educators and will focus on research-proven practices that can be implemented school-wide. The symposium will feature a range of keynotes and breakout sessions. Unlike other professional development events or conferences, this program will draw content solely from high-quality research and translate that research into practical knowledge bites so that practices and strategies can be replicated in schools and classrooms.

Early Bird Registration: $139; after February 5: $169
