Gerry, Gail; Corcoran, Tom
Consortium for Policy Research in Education
In the fall of 2009, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded a three-year project proposed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) to demonstrate the feasibility of increasing the participation of minority students and students in poverty in its Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP) in selected school districts in the United States. "Expanding Access, Participation and Success in IB Programmes" or the IB Access Project, as it has come to be known, is utilizing a multi-faceted technical assistance and materials development strategy to strengthen IB programs and broaden access for students previously excluded in the Anne Arundel County Public Schools, the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, and the Palm Beach County Public Schools. This is a report on the progress made in the second year of the project. Appended are: (1) Participation; (2) Interview Protocols; and (3) General Teacher Survey. (Contains 1 figure and 16 tables.) [For Year One report, "Expanding Access, Participation, and Success in International Baccalaureate Programmes: Year 1 Documentation Report," see ED536830.]
