While 455 schools from the state had applied to become a part of the board, only 80 of these had sent their consent letters for the same. Forty six schools have previously been selected in the first round of selections for affiliation with the board.

Francis Joseph, head of development and strategy, MIEB said, “The key factors which are inspiring schools for MIEB affiliation is our strong focus on teacher development, weaving of international pedagogies in a mother tongue language, strong importance on Indianness and local contextualisation.”

The board’s first meeting will be held in Pune on April 3. For the first year, Marathi will be the language of instruction.
