Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced a comprehensive partnership with Bridgeport Public Schools (BPS), to provide a blend of new curriculum, digital platforms, and services such as professional development and customized student assessments. The agreement comes as BPS prepares to kick off the 2013 Good Schools Bridgeport initiative, a district-wide program meant to improve academic achievement and overall school operations.

HMH worked with Bridgeport Public Schools educators to identify specific needs and built a customized solution that would address each of its goals.

“HMH very much understands our goal of transforming the school district, and has a strategic plan to help us succeed at the highest level possible,” said Paul Vallas, Superintendent Bridgeport Public Schools. “We are striving for dramatic academic reform district-wide, which is exactly what we believe this partnership will achieve.”

The partnership employs HMH products and services to create a fully-integrated district information solution. Bridgeport Public School educators will employ DataDirector, which allows users to combine, compare, and refine data from multiple sources and formats.

Based on Bridgeport Public School requirements, the partnership will provide core curriculum enrichment in the areas of reading literacy, mathematics, and science. Programs selected for the coming school year include Journeys, which provides systematic instruction in reading, fluency, writing, speaking, listening, and language; Math in Focus, the U.S. edition of Singapore’s most widely used program, My Pals Are Here!; and ScienceFusion, which uses a combination of digital, print, and hands-on curricula to help students develop key skills related to earth, life, physical, and natural science.

HMH’s Educational Consulting Services (ECS) will also offer research-based professional development training for the educators of Bridgeport Public Schools. ECS supports educators’ work with PreK-12 grade teachers in topics that cover Common Core Standards, reading, writing, math, science, ELL, intervention, STEM, educational leadership, instructional coaching, and technology integration.
