The Fort Lee School District in New Jersey will merge some Advance Placement and International Baccalaureate classes, such as English and history, to save money and to help students who want to take courses in both programs. After completion, the IB students will take the IB exams, and both AP and IB students can take the AP exams. "Many of our students who are in AP or desire taking an AP class also want to take an IB class and they have to make very difficult choices," assistant superintendent Sharon Amato said.
