Information: Middle School Matters Tier II School Opportunity and Application

Calling All Middle Grade Educators!

Apply to Become a Middle School Matters Tier II School and Attend the 2014 Summer Conference

The Middle School Matters Institute (MSMI), a partnership between the George W. Bush Institute and The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at The University of Texas at Austin, is seeking middle grade schools interested in receiving Tier II support and attending the 2014 MSMI Summer Conference. The conference will be held June 17–19, 2014, at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center in Austin, Texas. Eight schools from across the nation will be chosen to attend the conference (registration and meals will be provided for six members of each school’s leadership team), develop implementation plans aligned with school data and research-based practices, and implement the plans with ongoing support throughout the 2014–2015 school year. The overall goal is to improve outcomes for all students and increase the number of students well prepared to enter high school and earn a meaningful diploma.

It is recommended that schools interested in applying read the information on the flyer carefully to be fully aware of the requirements and commitment involved in becoming an MSMI Tier II school.
