SCCPSS could add IB Program to another high school

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham may be adding the International Baccalaureate Program into another high school.

This comes as a surprise to parents who attended a meeting last night who thought the program was on the chopping block again.

Parents say the IB Program makes Savannah attractive for businesses and families, and they're excited to have another option for IB students.

"It's only at one high school, and that high school is Johnson," said parent George Woods. "I think that's a great job, but there are a lot of children that are growing at Marsh Point and Coastal and have to make a decision, ‘do I want to stay at Islands [High School] or to continue IB I have to go to Johnson [High School]' and that's a choice parents don't want to make."

Parents just hope that when the budget decisions come again, the IB Program will be saved.

They were also promised the district would soon be hiring another coordinator.
