SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PRIORITIES
#
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
