There will be something new for students in the Farmington Public Schools. The district plans to create its own International Baccalaureate program. The money would come from the half million dollars Farmington School officials currently spend each year to support the International Academy, which is ranked as one of the top public schools in the country.
The School Board has voted to go ahead with the proposal, which calls for the IB program to begin next fall, with the 9th grade class that will graduate in 2015.
The program will be located at Harrison High School, and will be open to all high school students in the district, with enrollment projected at 140 students.
