The Harrison County Board of Education met Monday to discuss the future of the curriculum at Bridgeport High School.
Bridgeport has always had a tough course of study for its students. This year, it had to write a waiver to continue the practice.
The Board of Education felt that there were not enough options for classes in Bridgeport's curriculum, and voted to change in.
"We ended up collaborating with Bridgeport High School, the staff, the parents, the LSIC, and decided rather than say, ‘Those who are going into engineering must take chemistry and physics' let's say, 'They must take science," and then put a pool of rigorous science classes that the student can choose. The rigor is still there, the high expectations are still there, but the options for those students are more broad," said Wendy Imperial, assistant superintendent of curriculum.
