IB candidate schools
A guide to publicizing your plans
Congratulations on your decision to apply to become an IB World School. We know that candidate schools are very enthusiastic and eager to keep their school community informed of progress being made in their application.
In order to assist schools with their promotion and communication, the IB asks you to use this required text (136 kb, PDF), unchanged, in school publications, newsletters, brochures, staff advertisements and websites.
There are two documents that you should refer to for information and advice.
- Application procedure for candidate schools (20 kb, PDF). Article 4 concerns misleading statements in school publicity.
- IB policy and rules for use of IB intellectual property This provides information on the correct use of IB trademarks and copyright material, detailing what you can copy and how. For example, you may not use any of the IB's logos and you must acknowledge the IB as the source when you quote directly.
If you have any questions with regard to publicity, please contact your regional office or the communications team at email@example.com.
Finally, we wish you success in your implementation work and look forward to welcoming you as an IB World School.
