A high school in Tennessee is the first in the state to offer the International Baccalaureate Career-related Certificate and one of only 27 schools in the U.S. to do so. With the 2013-14 school year underway, officials say they have seen higher enrollment and momentum surrounding the program that bridges traditional IB academics with career-focused components of doing research and performing community service. "The Hillsboro faculty and staff worked for months to meet the rigorous IBCC standards of practice," said Allison Delano Bateman, IBCC coordinator at Hillsboro High School.
