Students require additional (supervised) time for completion of the dossier project. This would normally be started in Term 5 of this program.
Of course - this is all theoretical, in practice much depends on you, your school's other commitments and the ability/endeavour of your cohort.
If you have the chance, teaching separate HL and/or SL groups is a big advantage (to the students) over teaching in a mixed group.
In my experience HL students can suffer as much as a grade in difference when mixed with SL students.
However, if you have only a handful of students and limited resources, not much else can be done.
As ever, enthusiastic and self-motivated students can overcome this limitation.
This represents one way in which the program could be taught over a 7-term period.
In the New Zealand academic year each term has about 9 weeks.
Each week utilises 3 hours teaching at SL and 4.5 hours at HL.
You should be able to adapt the schedule for your local programme and timetable.
This schedule is a generous allowance according to IB requirements for 120 hours teaching for SL plus 25 hours of teaching time for the dossier.
