The school board has just voted 5-4 to remove Broughton High School's International Baccalaureate magnet program.
Rosa Gill, chairwoman of the school board, only votes to break ties. When it became clear that she would have to vote, her decision drew gasps and shock from upset Broughton parents and students.
Also voting to remove the magnet program were Beverley Clark, Patti Head, Ron Margiotta and Lori Millberg. Voting no were Eleanor Goettee, Kevin Hill, Horace Tart and Anne McLaurin.
The school board is planning to take a lunch break before voting on which new school will get the IB program.
