Vermont Association for Middle Level Education

We at VAMLE are excited to announce that we have received an overwhelming response from middle level schools across Vermont to attend our 10th annual student conference on Tuesday, March 14th at Champlain College. The interest has been so intense that registrations have caused an unexpected end point: Champlain College has no more physical capacity for anymore bodies at the facilities. Therefore, as of March 2nd, no more new registrations are being accepted. 

Those schools that have already received confirmation with an email message from VAMLE's Executive Director, Dave F. Brown, are encouraged to submit attendees' names (of both students and teachers) and their session choices within the next five days (by March 9th at the latest, please). Invoices are being generated and will be issued as soon as we receive your school's list of attendees and their session choices.

If you have any questions, please email us at For those who were not able to register due to this unexpected circumstance, we are sorry that Champlain College ran out of space, and sincerely hope that you'll consider joining next year!

Our Mission

VAMLE’s mission is to inform and guide all stakeholders dedicated to making education relevant and successful for Vermont’s 10-15 year olds. Middle level educators recognize that young adolescents are in transition between childhood and adolescence, and require programs and practices built on their specific needs.

Beyond Bullying: Creating a Culture of Respect in Learning Communities

The VAMLE Annual Conference is held each year in March, and brings together teams of middle level students and educators from across Vermont. The goal of the conference is to develop student leadership in planning for school change. A keynote speaker opens the conference, followed by workshops that offer strategies for combatting bullying and building a culture of respect and inclusion.
