MCPS Summer International Baccalaureate Workshops

Thanks to all who participated in the 2019 Summer Institute June 17 -19, at the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education & Human Sciences, on the University of Montana Campus.  Missoula County Public School hosts these workshops that provide educational leaders, decision makers and practitioners from local schools, the ability to come together and share best practices around cultivating the way we educate students. Motivated by the IB mission, the workshops fostered partnerships, participation and provided a forum for discussions on educational quality.  The 15-hour trainings were offered over 2.5 days.  For more 2019 workshop details, please read workshop descriptions below.

At this time 2020 workshops are TBD.  If you would like to be placed on the wait list for upcoming workshops, please email the IB Workshop Coordinator at: michelle.eckert@umontana.edu.
