Public statement from the YCS Board of Education regarding WIMA:

Public statement from the YCS Board of Education regarding WIMA:

The availability of an accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP), for grades 6-10, housed in a YCS school building, will enhance the educational options available to YCS students. As an outcome of the current discussions between YCS and the Washtenaw Educational Options Consortium (WEOC), grades 6-8 of the IB MYP (WIMA) will continue to be populated, completely (100%), by YCS-enrolled students, either as residents or schools of choice students indefinitely. Consistent with the YCS board resolution passed on October 16, 2017, WEOC’s Joint Steering Committee is moving forward with plans to expand WEOC programming to unite WIMA and WIHI under a single governance structure, allowing WEOC to complete and maintain accreditation of a 6-10 IB MYP and an 11-12 Diploma Programme.

Because all pupils enrolled in grades 6-8 of the IB MYP will be YCS students, WEOC and YCS agree that the student achievement scores of WIMA students will be reported as YCS performance data. Likewise, we anticipate that all resources currently available to YCS students enrolled in WIMA will continue to be available. Transportation of YCS students by YCS will continue.

YCS will be responsible for developing and maintaining an enrollment plan for grades 6-8 of the IB MYP, subject to final approval by WEOC’s Joint Steering Committee, on which YCS’s Superintendent serves. For 2018-2019 and 2019-2020, YCS will continue to guarantee YIES student enrollment in WIMA. The YCS Board of Education will hear public comments and receive proposals on the enrollment plan for WIMA for 2020 and subsequent years on April 17, 2018, at a special workshop dedicated to this matter. The YCS Board of Education will vote on a final enrollment plan at a regularly scheduled board meeting occurring on a later date.

Through the spring, YCS will continue its negotiations with WEOC to finalize costs and lease terms for West Middle School. The final lease and Program Addendum to the WEOC Consortium will be made available for public review as the board considers their approval. These agreements will be approved at a regularly scheduled board meeting.

We deeply appreciate the hard work of all who contributed to the agreements that anchored this programming option in Ypsilanti, for our children, and the voices of our community who showed unfailing support for Ypsilanti Community Schools.
