Ann Arbor International Baccalaureate Staff Information Meeting - 5/28, 4:15 PM, Huron

AAPS staff interested in learning more about the upcoming Ann Arbor International Baccalaureate initiative - A2-IB - are invited to come to Huron High School's Meyer Auditorium on May 28 at 4:15 PM.  

This session will share IB information and plans as we currently know them including:
- basics about IB education,
- the 3-year timeline for becoming "authorized" World Schools - including the exploratory/information gathering 2014-15 school year (known as the "Consideration Year" in IB terminology),
- details about the three IB programs being offered - the grades K-5 Primary Years Programme, the grades 6-10 Middle Years Programme, and the grades 11-12 Diploma Programme.

In the meantime, an A2-IB website has been posted with information also.  Many staff are reporting that it has been helpful. Check it out:  http://a2-ib.blogspot.com
