The Akron Public Schools (APS) Board of Education authorized the establishment of an International Baccalaureate (IB) primary years program at Resnik Community Learning Center (CLC) at the Jan. 28 meeting.
The new Resnik IB program will join Firestone, Litchfield and Case CLC as APS schools offering the rigorous IB curriculum.

Resnik Principal Kristen Booth and staff members who attended the meeting were applauded by the board for their intensive work to earn the IB designation for their school. Booth explained the program’s goal “is for students to take action in the world to help improve society — the students are encouraged to take the initiative in their actions.”

Booth noted the board approval occurred on the same day as the space shuttle Challenger tragedy 33 years ago. She reminded the board that Akron native Judith Resnik, for whom her school is named, died in that tragedy and “it’s almost like Judy is looking over us today.”
