Is an approval letter from the school mandatory to apply to the IC3 Institute’s Flagship One-Year Program?

Yes. The school will need to provide an approval letter confirming that the participant will attend all four residential weeks in person and 3-5 hours of online work every week throughout the program. The school should agree and confirm that if the participant leaves the program mid-way, the school will be liable to pay USD 500 to the IC3 Institute as administrative charges within 30 days of the participant’s discontinuation from the program.
It is imperative that schools support their teachers’ participation in the program since the learnings from the IC3 Institute program will subsequently be implemented at the school to improve student outcomes.
