JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – The Johnson City Board of Education is expected to make a decision tonight about the future of Science Hill High School’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
Superintendent Dr. Steve Barnett is recommending the district phase out the highly intensive college readiness program by the end of next school year (2018-2019) to make way for an expanded selection of AP courses at SHHS.
As we reported last week, a committee recommended phasing out the program, so the district can expand AP course offerings.
The school board meets at 6 pm.
