Dear IB Diploma Program (DP) families,

We hope you are safe and healthy during these difficult and uncertain times. On Monday night, the District unexpectedly uploaded the IB FAQ sheet.  Since that occurred, it has been decided that Desert Mountain will offer accommodations to our DP students who cannot attend in-person classes, so our students can continue on and finish the Diploma Program. 

Dr. Hirsch, Mrs. Emond and I will create a “Return to Learn” plan for students who are attending in-person and how to accommodate students who cannot return to the class in-person. 

When families have to make the choice between Scottsdale Online Learning and “Full Return to Site,” the IB DP students should select the “Full Return on Site”.  Please review the information provided on the district website regarding the progress of our reopening plans on the Return to Learn page https://www.susd.org/Page/4350.

These are uniquely challenging times. The decisions you make must be what is best for your student and your family.  Please feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any further questions.  More information will come once we have a plan in place.  Please be patient while we work though this plan.  Stay heatlhy!

International BaccalaureateSincerely,                                                                 

Laura Kamka

IB DP Coordinator

Dr. Lisa Hirsch
