About BRIDGEPORT PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Of all 100 urban school districts that are eligible for The Broad Prize, Bridgeport Public Schools serves the highest percentage of poor students-95 percent qualify for free and reduced-price school lunch. Those demographics have led Bridgeport to embrace the idea of extending its focus beyond straight academics to include what Superintendent John Ramos calls the "well-being of the whole child." "We need to create a school infrastructure that supports student social and emotional well-being, too, as a way of eliminating the barriers to learning," explains Henry Kelly, deputy superintendent for learning and teaching. That philosophy has become evident in the district's commitment to provide full family health care at each school for students and their families. With onsite staff that includes a nurse practitioner, dentist, mental health counselor, outreach worker and others, the district recognizes that if children are healthy, they are more likely to learn. And Bridgeport's approach is paying off. In 2006, Bridgeport outperformed other districts in Connecticut serving similar student populations in reading and math at all grade levels, according to The Broad Prize methodology. Bridgeport also showed greater improvement than peer districts in the state. Bridgeport's low-income students also showed great improvement than their peers in similar Connecticut districts in reading and math at all grade levels, according to the Broad Prize methodology.
