Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, IB students will have two distinct learning formats available for the 2020-21 school year: Campus Learning or Campus eSchool. Information, including a Frequently Asked Question section, has been posted at www.polkschoolsfl.com/reopening and may be updated periodically.
At the school and district level, we will continue to work with the Florida Association of IB World Schools, International Baccalaureate, and local community partners in the coming days to help ensure that all of our students have access to curriculum resources.
The IB Programme curriculum is unique and requires specialized training by staff. Schools must be authorized by International Baccalaureate to offer the IB curriculum. Therefore, IB courses are not available online through Polk Virtual School or Florida Virtual School. If a student chooses to enroll in PVS or FLVS, they will forfeit their seat in a magnet, choice, or academy program. If a parent wants to maintain their seat at HCIB, they will need to select either the eSchool option or campus learning option.
Thank you for your patience as we work to find the best options possible for our students.
