Beyond Bullying: Creating a Culture of Respect  
Vermont's Young Adolescents for the 21st Century.
Designed to inform and guide all stakeholders dedicated to make education relevant and successful for all of Vermont’s 10-14 year olds. Based on Vermont and National data Vermont’s Middle Grades Task Force created ten research based goals to support the educational needs of young adolescents.
Clearly aligned with the concepts embodied in our Transformation of Education efforts, and inspired by “High Schools on the Move” the document provides a roadmap that can be immediately helpful to educators at all levels. This a resource that will help all of Vermont’s educators envision and implement an educational system that truly responds to the diverse learning needs of Vermont’s learners.
At this time there is a professional development committee developing tools, resources and coaching opportunities to accompany Middle School Is Not a Building. Download the PDF 3MB
