Construction update: Currently the construction project for Bridgeport School District is being advertised for bid. Potential contractors will do a walk through on August 22nd. Final bid selection is set for September 6th. Once a contractor is selected the work will begin. In the mean time the middle school has been vacated and will not be used this school year.
The project involves three different areas. First of all the middle school will be abated and torn down to its foundation and rebuilt in new construction. The gym portion will not be torn down but it will receive remodeling. The high school will have the front office remodeled and reconfigured to ensure a secure entrance and we will double the size of the kitchen, making it the main cooking kitchen for the district. Additionally we will add a music room and two additional classrooms to be added to the backside of the high school. The elementary will add classrooms and new office space around the elementary gym. This includes a music room and four regular classrooms. Updates to the playground is also in the plans.
The work will begin in September and the plan is to be ready for students and staff in the fall of 2019.
District items of interest:
The next regularly scheduled school board meeting is August 27, 2018 6:00 pm, Superintendent’s Office.
Ensure a school culture where every student is respected, safe, academically challenged and engaged:
The buildings are cleaned and almost ready to go. The most obvious change is that the middle school has been vacated and we have been squeezed into the elementary and the high school.
The middle school students will have a year without lockers so we are requiring clear/mesh backpacks. These backpacks can be purchased in the middle school office located in the trailer on the outside basketball court.
Ensure rigorous and relevant learning opportunities:
Right Response training for some staff is August 16th and 17th from 8:30-3:30.
Imagine Learning training for some staff is August 21st from 8:00-11:30.
Due to the district’s upcoming construction project the preschool program will run a modified schedule for the 2018-19 school year.
Preschool begins: October 29
Preschool ends: March 29
Parents need to register students at the Elementary Office by October 15.
