Vision Statement Our vision is to be a model urban school district that values and celebrates diversity and is renowned for its academic excellence and its support of the emotional well-being of the school community.
Mission Statement The mission of Bridgeport Public Schools is to inspire our diverse community to work together in order to serve our students. We will support the development of excellent leadership, and utilize our unique resources to challenge and cultivate well-balanced individuals who seek knowledge and make significant contributions to society throughout their lives.
Belief Statements We Believe… that a genuine professional learning community embraces the value of collaborative efforts that cultivate the social and emotional well-being of all of our students. that a rigorous, relevant, well-designed curriculum, which includes authentic educational experiences will afford our students the opportunities to think critically, integrate their ideas and be successful.
that research based interventions and enrichment will cultivate the intellectual and social-emotional well-being of all of our students and will result in their success. that collaboration, open communication, and no fault problem solving among district leadership, schools, parents, and community partners will result in success for our students. that the Board of Education united in the pursuit of success for every child is a powerful force that will support the success of all of our students.
Theory of Action 1 If we cultivate a Professional Learning Community led by exemplary leaders who acquire and apply knowledge of data process/analysis and an understanding of emotional intelligence, then all stakeholders will be able to make decisions that effectively inform instructional practices, and student achievement will increase.
Theory of Action 2 If we implement a rigorous cohesive curriculum, which is authored by teachers and implemented with fidelity using scientifically based instructional strategies, then teaching and learning will improve and student achievement will increase.
Theory of Action 3 If we continuously analyze our students’ academic and behavioral needs and respond with a systematic protocol of intervention and enrichment strategies and utilize pertinent resources, then all students’ achievement will increase.
Theory of Action 4 If we systematically disseminate vital information to families and the community; such as district policies, structures and training, and strive to cultivate strong, equitable partnerships that empower all stake holders, then we will generate enthusiasm for learning and student achievement will increase.
Theory of Action 5 If all members of the Board of Education support the efforts of the superintendent, staff and community to achieve excellence in each of our schools, and work as a coalesced body with the superintendent to secure resources that will enable our students opportunities to achieve academic excellence and emotional intelligence, then Bridgeport Public Schools will become a model urban district.
