Lunch and Keynote for Superintendents, Heads of School, and Coordinators
Monday, November 4
Graf Center, 2020 Builder’s Place, Columbus, Ohio 43204
with Daniel Wartick, Principal of North Kansas City High School
This conversation will delve into strategies that bring the IB Diploma Progamme framework more fully into the systems of your school processes and practices. The objective of the conversation is to reframe how the IB Diploma Programme can be embedded as part of the school culture and not one of many programs that you have to manage! We will discuss various components of the IB Diploma Programme and see how they can be integrated into current initiatives that schools are balancing. We will move on the continuum of recognizing your school as an IB World School.
