The IB Program started at Humble with a District IB Director as well as a
District IB Secretary providing support to the school Program Coordinators.

Over the years the people in these positions have moved on and the

District has not replaced anyone into their positions thereby

exponentially increasing the responsibilities and work load of the IB

Coordinators especially the High School Coordinator without increasing

the monetary compensation. This creates and untenable imbalance in the

position making it difficult to keep dedicated, quality personnel in

place for extended periods of time. Ultimately, this will erode the

stability and retard the growth of the Program. The school district

initially set up a three legged support system (Director,

Secretary & Coordinator) and have subsequently pulled out two of its

legs. This needs to be remedied before the entire program begins to


The IB Program is a proven success model for the Humble ISD students.

This year alone over $3,720,000.00 million in scholarships was awarded

to the 54 Students in the IB class. Our IB Students have been granted

admission to some of the most prestige schools in and out of State

Including: Rice, UT Austin, Texas A & M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Sam

Houston, U of H, as well as The United States Air Force Academy,

Harvard, Vanderbilt, Cornell, Howard, and Manchester University in UK.

Please sign the petition below to request adequate funding and personnel

to make this program a continued and growing success. This will allow

the program to keep the most dedicated and caring professionals that go

above and beyond their job description, like Mrs. Petree.
