Toddle has been working on a very special event designed specifically for school leaders called the School Leaders Bootcamp


It's happening virtually on March 3rd and 4th and we've got some amazing speakers lined up: Seth Godin, George Couros, Stephen Covey, Holly Ransom, and Diane Tavenner.


We've got a ton of great stuff planned - interactive keynotes, networking, masterclasses, and case studies by experienced educators and leadership experts. And best of all…it's completely free! 


Over 5,000 school leaders from 100+ countries have already registered, and we would love for the school leaders from MNIB to join us as well. We can assure you that the learning and takeaways will be unparalleled. 


Interested folks can register using this link


Hope to see you at this amazing and free event!

Congratulations to Rockford High School !

Now authorized as an MYP, DP, and CP IB World School after adding MYP this Spring

Some of the resources available to Champlin Park CP students included amazing welding, machining and CNC equipment, along with aviation simulators and medical training facilities.

We had a great visit to the Anoka schools STEP Center

About 10 MNIB Career-related Programme coordinators and their DP colleagues toured the Champlin Park CP offerings at the Anoka-Hennepin District tech education center known as STEP. We began with a roundtable of CP coordinators at Champlin Park HS before traveling to STEP to see welding, nursing assistant, aviation, and EMT classes in action. Champlin offers 8 CTE pathways and serves as a great model for other CP (and aspiring CP) schools.
