Do you know how unique Hankey’s K-8 Program is?
Carl Hankey’s K-8 IB Program is the only self funded Public K-8 International Baccalaureate in Orange County. It is also the only locally funded public program in the state. What that means is:
Carl Hankey families pay all of the financial costs of this program. CUSD has given its permission forHankey K-8 to pursue IB, but does not pay for any IB costs.
It costs our learning community over $40,000 a year to build and maintain this well respected international educational program. The cost breakdown for the program is:
- $20,000 in yearly program fees for both schools. This gets us access to IB materials,access to staff development programs and pays for school site reviews
- $9,000 for IB Conferences and teacher staff development
- $3,000 Art Masters
- $3,000 for the middle school technology curriculum
- $10,000 for curriculum writers and grade/ dept. team coaching
Our major fundraiser for these funds is the IB Hawk Trot!
