The IBC project is a system of support for Idaho schools and districts that are in “needs improvement” status. A rigorous school and district selection process is used to select schools and districts that are in needs improvement status and serve a high percentage of at-risk students and have limited local resources. The IBC Project utilizes recently retired, distinguished educators who are trained to assist school and district leaders in facilitating the work of school improvement in Idaho’s neediest schools and districts. Capacity Builders are provided with a “tool kit” of school improvement resources, and then in partnership with school and district leaders, help create and implement a customized school improvement plan.
