The Tenth Annual Conference on Middle Level Education in Arkansas will be co-sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Education and the Arkansas Association of Middle Level Education. Funding will be provided by Carnegie Middle Grade School State Policy Initiative, which has been coordinated at the Department of Education since 1989. The Department of Education has established a Middle Level Education Unit to provide technical assistance to Arkansas public schools that are interested in educational reform for grades 5-9. The conference will be held at the Hot Springs Convention Center in Hot Springs, Arkansas on April 11 - 13.
The concurrent sessions will represent best practices for classroom instruction in grades 5 - 9. A special three-hour Discipline Workshop is also available on Sunday and Monday evening.
Registration packets have been mailed to all schools that include any of the middle level grades (5-9). If you need additional information, please call the Middle Level Education office.
