As your school plans its budget for the 2023-24 school year, consider funding for attendance at the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education (PAMLE) state conference in 2024. The PAMLE conference, which is one of the few middle level specific conferences in the state, will be at the Crowne Plaza in King of Prussia February 24-26, 2024. This is a great professional development opportunity for your staff to reload and refresh their middle level best practices with practitioners from across the state. Information will be posted at
