Half of the schools in the second phase of the “One School for All” Program of the Center for Inclusive Education (CIS) are current partnering schools of Teach for Bulgaria. Following a three-stage selection process, a total of 10 schools will be included in the Program. Teachers under a Teach for Bulgaria Program work in five of them. These are: “Nesho Bonchev” High School, Panagyurishte; School 156 “Vassil Levski”, Sofia, Kremikovtzi Quarter; “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” School, Vetren, “Hristo Botev” School, Brestnitsa Village, Lovech Region, and School 97 “Bratya Miladinovi”, Sofia.
The CIS will work with the schools selected to build a systematic approach to help schools organize their resources and organizational and management processes so that the school becomes inclusive. All members of the school community — children, teachers, principals, specialists and parents — are involved in the Program for achieving the goals, and the project will continue in the period 2016-2019.
During the second phase of the “One School for All” Program, the CIS will focus on testing the School Process Model for Building Inclusive School Environment with more partnering schools and a wider geographic reach. The teams of the new schools will meet for the first time together in a pilot training, which will take place from 28 and 30 April 2017 in Plovdiv. The event will also be attended by representatives of the first phase schools of the “One School for All” Program. A partnering school of Teach for Bulgaria — School 202 “Hristo Botev” of Dolni Pasarel — was also included.
