Academy's International Baccalaureate program

Lorne Green

The Cape Breton Regional School Board will cut Sydney Academy's International Baccalaureate program. The only IB program on the island.

Students were told the news yesterday and today the general public began to hear the news.

Kids from Sydney, Glace Bay, the North Side and even as far away as St. Ann's and Baddeck travel and board to Sydney Academy so they can attend the program.

The Provincial Government pays seventy-thousand dollars annually to cover the costs associated with the program including fees, examinations and professional development for teachers.

The board want to move the students and teachers from that program into the main stream.
To talk about that we reached Lorne Green.
