Superintendent's Message

Hello and thank you for you entrusting the Bridgeport Exempted Village School District as we educate your children.  On June 26, 2019 the board of education put their trust in me to serve the students, faculty, parents and community members of this district.  Bridgeport has a wonderful tradition of excellence in and out of the classroom as well as superior family and community support.  It is my goal to continue to build upon these strengths with all stakeholders throughout our district.

Bridgeport has been a leader in technology, and we will continue to foster this approach to teaching and learning.  Another area of focus is student ownership, relevance and rigor as to what is being taught and mastered.  I believe we should focus on the importance of each content area which will lead to your children becoming thriving and contributing members of society.  Students will be challenged and encouraged into coursework that builds upon their individual talents.  Ultimately, we want them to pursue careers in which they are passionate and purpose driven.  

I have a personal goal to keep our parents and community members well informed of the news within our district.  Please take some time to follow us on Twitter @bpt_bulldogs (Bridgeport Schools) or you may be kept up to date by downloading the district app Bridgeport School District through your smartphone.  The district will be making it a practice on keeping you informed of the happenings within our district.  Also, starting in September, a weekly online newsletter will be sent out through our district app, emailed and posted on our district website for parents and community members.  This newsletter will be highlighting the successes and up and coming events within our district.  

For our district, the safety and security of students and faculty is a top priority.  Currently, Bridgeport employs a full time school resource officer on site.  Throughout this year, we will hold safety meetings with leaders in and out of our community so we may evaluate our current drills and procedures.  Our focus is to look at what we are practicing and find ways to improve our facility.

I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to lead the Bridgeport Exempted Village School District and look forward to meeting you.  

Go Dogs!

Brent Ripley
