The Need to Address Racial Segregation Between Neighboring School Districts

   

Established in 2016, Classes without walls is currently being developed to provide the opportunity for students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades to communicate with students from a neighboring school district that has a different socioeconomic profile. Piloted in the State of Connecticut, the Trumbull School District and the Bridgeport Public Schools engaged in an on - line inquiry based project on student heritage and culture. The students engaged in an activity that explores the history of immigration in the United States and culminated in an activity where the students investigated the culture of their partner in the neighboring district. The entire project can be viewed on the services page.

Currently we are developing projects in the English Language Arts, Social Studies and Science/S.T.E.M.. These projects will be available for the 2016 - 2017 school year.

The project coordinators are Dr. Randall Glading and Dr. Charles Britton, professors at the Isabelle Farrington College of Education at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield Connecticut.

  

Learning Projects in Development Stage

Upon completion of the pilot project in the spring of 2016, learning projects will be developed in four content areas, English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science/S.T.E.M. and personal growth. These will be developed and managed by content area specialists. These projects will be available by January 1, 2017. We will be reaching out to districts to form partnerships similiar to the two schools in the pilot program, Madison Elementary School and Daniels Farm Elementary Schools.
