The Association for Middle Level Education partners with and serves as a member of several organizations whose missions and purposes are consistent with AMLE.
America's Promise Alliance
Founded by General Colin Powell, America's Promise Alliance is comprised of corporations, nonprofit organizations, foundations, policymakers, advocacy groups, and faith groups. They are committed to seeing that children experience the fundamental resources they need to succeed—the Five Promises—at home, in school, and in the community. They believe that children's success is grounded in having caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, an effective education, and opportunities to help others.
Attendance Awareness Month
Attendance Works is a national and state initiative that promotes awareness of the important role that school attendance plays in achieving academic success starting with school entry. The goal is to ensure that every district in the country not only tracks chronic absence data beginning in kindergarten or ideally earlier, but also partners with families and community agencies to intervene when attendance is a problem for children or particular schools.
The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation
CAEP is the profession's mechanism to help establish high quality teacher preparation. Through the process of professional accreditation of schools, colleges and departments of education, CAEP works to make a difference in the quality of teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century.
