Three school districts in two states have been selected as the third cohort of sites to receive guidance from nationally recognized experts in research-based instructional strategies through the Middle School Matters Institute.
Etiwanda School District in Southern California and Pharr–San Juan–Alamo and San Angelo independent school districts in Texas were selected after a rigorous review process. District leadership teams and leaders from two schools in each district will attend the third annual Middle School Matters Institute Summer Conference in June in Austin, Texas. In the 2015–2016 school year, the districts will implement what they learned at the conference with support from a team of experts.
The Middle School Matters program is an initiative of the George W. Bush Institute in partnership with The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk. For more information, read the press release from the George W. Bush Institute.
