For each cluster with a high school IB program, which middle schools do not have an IB program? What would be the cost to add a middle year IB program at each of these schools?

Question#: 45

BUDGET PAGE REFERENCE: 1-11 and 4-22

ANSWER:

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a Grades 6–10 program.  Costs vary from year-to-year based on the number of staff members requiring professional development and the IB fees charged.  On average, adding an MYP at one middle school for FY 2014 would cost $117,493.  This includes $65,018 for substitutes, professional part-time, travel for staff development, dues and registration fees, and instructional materials; and $52,475 for a 0.8 teacher coordinator position, including employee benefits.  Adding an MYP for Grades 9 and 10 students at a high school where an IB Diploma Programme (DP) already exists would cost $71,856 in FY 2014. This includes $32,509 for substitutes, professional part-time, travel for staff development, dues and registration fees, and instructional materials; and $39,356 for a 0.6 teacher coordinator position, including employee benefits. 

The table below shows the high schools that currently have an IB DP without an MYP feeder and the annual cost of adding a Grades 6–10 MYP.  Three of our IB DPs are part of student-choice consortia––the Northeast Consortium (NEC) or the Downcounty Consortium (DCC). Students entering these high schools may feed from a number of middle schools.
