The offers for secondary International Baccalaureate (IB) programs are made at a different time than the other RLCP programs – why?
The IB program is a “global” program compared to all of the other RLCP programs offered by the Peel Board. The IB programs, including the grades nine and ten Middle Years Program (MYP) and grades 11 and 12 Diploma Program (DP), do not follow the Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum and Growing Success as do other RLCP programs; they adhere to the expectations of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). IB schools undergo rigorous program reviews and are inspected every five years by a team of examiners to ensure alignment with current IBO guidelines and expectations. After the inspections, identified “Matters to be Addressed” must be taken care of, otherwise the school risks losing its IB accreditation. IBO requires teachers, co-ordinators and the principal of the school to be IB trained in three successive levels.
Collaboration of IB teachers when grading student work is a necessity not required of teachers in other RLCP programs. IB teachers are held accountable for the accuracy of their marking of student work against the IB standards. IBO randomly selects samples of all student work marked by IB teachers for the purpose of review and re-marking. All sections of a course may be graded upwards or downwards depending on the teacher’ accuracy as determined by an International Examiner. In addition to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), the Ontario Ministry of Education permits graduates of the IB program to also earn the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Mandatory co-curricular components (Personal Project, Service as Action, CAS, Extended Essay) must be achieved under the supervision of a staff member outside of class time for an IB student to earn their Diploma. Co-curricular components require extensive volunteerism on the part of teachers and without this volunteerism, students cannot obtain an IB diploma. No other RLCP requires “mandatory” volunteering of its staff for the success of the program. IB students must take a full course load each year to meet IB diploma requirements i.e. no spares; night school, summer school and e-learning courses are not accessible to IB students for credit towards their IB diploma. There is a yearly, fixed cost associated with offering the IB and MYP programs, including cost for exams, onsite coordinator and processing fees. These costs are charged regardless of whether the classes are full or not.
Due to the aforementioned factors, and other strict requirements, it is imperative that the grade nine classes be filled in order to make the program sustainable over the four years.​
