Last night the RPS School Board voted unanimously to support Chimborazo Elementary School’s International Baccalaureate initiative. This allows Chimborazo to begin a feasibility study and puts the school on track to become a fully authorized IB World school by 2015, and begin IB implementation next school year.
Councilwoman Cynthia Newbille recently allocated $15,000 from the 2012 budget to help pay for the feasibility study and private funds are starting to be pledged for the additional $354,360 that must be raised. If you are interested in hearing more or joining this effort, the IB task force is meeting on Wednesday, June 8th at 7PM at Chimborazo Elementary School.
