Friday: IB Continuum Schools and Districts - How We Got Here

Presented by Paul Campbell, Head of Regional Development & Outreach, IBO

The concept of a continuum of IB programmes is taken for granted, but it is actually the result of two decades of work. Diving into this history, IB's most senior staff person will reflect on the history of the continuum, how we arrived at this point, and what lies ahead.

Saturday: Leading in an IB Continuum District

Presented by: Kevin Karr and Jeanice Swift, Michigan School District

Presented by Jane Drake, Head of Curriculum Innovation and Alignment, IBO
