Mission
 The Ansonia Public Schools, consisting of a partnership between the community, parents, and educators, is committed to providing a safe, progressive learning environment that ensures students achieve their maximum individual potential with the confidence to take intellectual risks and become curious, lifelong learners
Background
Ansonia Public Schools is a non-profit, tax exempt government entity that provides educational services to children in Grades K-12. In addition, there are two specialized programs that serve pre-school children, ages 3-4, and an alternative education program serving 36 high school students.

The organization is comprised of four school buildings and one Central Office, which houses the Superintendent of School, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, and business office. The four schools include two elementary buildings serving children in PreK or Kindergarten-Grade 6: John C. Mead School and John G. Prendergast School. Ansonia Middle School serves Ansonia children in Grades 7 and 8 and houses the majority of Ansonia’s Pre-K program. Ansonia High School serves students in Grades 9-12, including an alternative education program.

Ansonia is fortunate to have facilities that were built or updated within the past 20 years. City residents approved a $50.5 million referendum in 1996 which led to the construction of a new high school in 1999; two additions to the elementary schools; and a renovation of the former Ansonia High for use as a middle school and pre-k program. 

Ansonia Public Schools is governed by a Board of Education that is comprised of seven elected residents, who serve four-year terms. The Ansonia Board of Education meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in Ansonia High School, 20 Pulaski Highway.

Dr. Carol Merlone is Ansonia’s 16th Superintendent of Schools. A native of Ansonia, she rose through the ranks to become Superintendent in 2007. Dr. Merlone is joined by Dr. Joseph DiBacco, Assistant Superintendent. They oversee 12 administrators: a special education director, a Language Arts administrator, a Math administrator, four principals, four assistant principals and one Dean of Student Affirs. There is also a School Business Administrator, Grants Manager, School Readiness coordinator, facilities director, food services director, and technology director.

The district currently serves approximately 2,347 children in Pre-K-Grade 12, with nearly 200 teachers and certified support staff, as well as about 175 non-certified staff employed, making the school district the largest city department in Ansonia.
Ansonia Public Schools has a rich history, reflective of the growing population during the industrial revolution. Ansonia’s first Superintendent of Schools was W.H. Angleton, from 1891-1897. John Stevens still remains Ansonia’s longest-serving Superintendent at 27 years (2011-12 and 1931-1957).
Impact

One of the top accomplishments of the school district during the 2016-17 school year came in late April 2017 via U.S. News & World Report:

Ansonia High School is ranked 34 out of more than 200 Connecticut high schools, receiving a bronze medal in the 2017 Best High Schools Rankings, which was released by U.S. News & World Report in April 2017. According to U.S. News, the awards “reflect which schools are most successfully preparing students for college, based on students participating in and achieving passing scores on Advanced Placement tests. For a school to be eligible for an award, its students must also do well on the appropriate statewide tests and graduate at high rates.”

Earlier in the month, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy announced that graduation rates were up throughout the state. Ansonia High’s graduation rate grew from 76.5% in 2012 to nearly 89% in 2016. U.S. News reported that of Ansonia High’s 584 students, 37% participated in Advanced Placement tests last year, and 34% received a passing grade. “This is the first time our high school has earned a medal in the Best High Schools Ranking,” Dr. Carol Merlone, Superintendent of Schools, stated. “We are thrilled! This is reflective of our students’ desire to prepare for college and take on challenges. While our budgets have been extremely tight and we’ve had to make numerous cuts to programs and staffing in recent years, we have been able to maintain and expand our college-credit courses thanks to the dedication of our staff and the use of grant funds.”

A total of 48 Connecticut high schools received a gold, silver or bronze medal in the 2017 Best High Schools Rankings. U.S. News uses four steps in determining the awards: Step 1: Examining reading and math results on the state’s proficiency tests, then factoring in the percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Step 2: Comparing the school’s math and reading proficiency rates for disadvantaged students with statewide results, then selecting schools that were performing better than their state averages. Step 3: Schools with graduation rates lower than 75% were excluded. Step 4: A College Readiness Index was calculated, based on the school’s AP participation rate and how well the students did on those tests.

AHS currently offers 11 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, eight UConn courses, three Housatonic Community College courses, and two University of New Haven courses. During the 2015-16 year, nearly 100 juniors and seniors earned college credit from one of the UConn, HCC or UNH courses, and 46 seniors enrolled in AP courses.



Needs

Ansonia Public Schools is required by the State Department of Education to establish a District Improvement Plan every three years. The current plan, approved in 2017, established the following three goals based on three priority areas:

Literacy:  By 2018 end of year, 80% of all students assessed by STAR will meet their expected growth target;

Numeracy:  By 2018 end of year, 80% of all students assessed by STAR will meet their expected growth target; and

College Readiness:  By 2018, the four-year graduation rate of all students will be 85% or greater.

The District Improvement Plan is posted on the Ansonia Public Schools’ website (www.ansonia.org) under the Department of Teaching and Learning link.


CEO Statement

Carol Merlone, Ed.D., the 16th Superintendent of Schools, is a passionate advocate for children and a strong leader who embraces school change. Under her leadership, Mrs. Merlone set four goals: 1. Develop and ensure effective district reform governance through efficient and positive Board of Education/Superintendent relations; 2. Increase student achievement for all students while simultaneously closing the achievement gap; 3. Improve public trust, commitment, and confidence through open, honest communication and responsive corrective action in order to increase student achievement and conditions of teaching and learning; and 4. Foster a supportive, positive and effective district climate and culture focused on improving student achievement.

Mrs. Merlone gives monthly written progress reports to the Board of Education, posting her newsletters on the school district website: www.ansonia.org. Here are several of the successes achieved during her years at the helm:

* With the help of the State of Connecticut and its “Project Opening Doors,” Ansonia High School was able to expand the Advanced Placement courses at Ansonia High School over the past six years. The project, which concluded two years ago, was meant to encourage more students to attend college. AHS now offers 11 AP courses, eight UConn courses, three Housatonic Community College Prep courses, and two University of New Haven courses. Students who meet the criteria can earn from 3 to 8 college credits. Ansonia High's Top 10 graduates of the Class of 2017 each earned 20 or more college credits.

* Transparency and accountability describe the school district’s practices since 2007, including but not limited to district finances. Budgets are built from a $0 base, submitted to the Superintendent and Business Administrator, and cuts are made prior to being brought to the Ansonia Board of Education. Each year, building and department heads present their budget directly to the Board of Education. The Superintendent and Business Manager then present the budget to the city's tax board, followed by the Board of Aldermen. The aldermen determine the fate of all budgets, including that of the school district.

Children who enter the Pre-K classes will benefit from a home visit by their child’s teacher. They may also receive intervention services, if services such as speech, occupational therapy, or similar special interventions are needed. All children who complete one year in the School Readiness program have participated in a high quality experience in a licensed and/or accredited preschool program. They will have improved their social/emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical skills which are based on Connecticut’s Early Learning Development Standards (ELD’s) and assessment framework from the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood. All children will have an individual portfolio, which will address their individual strengths and weaknesses. With these measures in place, children are better prepared for the transition to kindergarten.

 
Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.

The goal of the Ansonia Pre-K program is for ALL of the children to complete kindergarten with strong readiness skills. Family members are encouraged to become actively involved in their child’s education. In order to gauge the success of our program, we are collecting data on our “graduates,” including their reading scores at the end of kindergarten, as well as whether they are still receiving special education services. We intend to track our students through the end of third grade in order to determine if the student has maintained or improved their reading skills across the development scale.

We have also continued participating in a health initiative with Griffin Hospital, called VITAHLS, which promotes healthy eating and fitness, and we have begun tracking health data for our students.

The Ansonia Pre-K program was re-accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children in July 2017. Over the previous five years, Ansonia's PreK staf worked diligently to maintain all of the 10 Early Learning Program Standards and Criteria, and it shows, with perfect scores of 100% in each of the 10 categories.

The standards required by this national agency are very high. Using those guidelines, Ansonia’s School Readiness Coordinator, Krista Gambino, is required to visit the classrooms quarterly. She observes how teachers are documenting their progress with the children, the physical environment, the structure of the day, teacher and child interactions, and family involvement. She meets with the program directors to get more information about their transition to kindergarten activities, nutrition programming and parent involvement. These observation reports are shared with the Valley Early Childhood Regional Council, which oversees preschool programs in Ansonia, Derby, Shelton and Seymour..

With their children enrolled in a pre-school program, families seeking employment have the time to search for a job or go back to school. Families may be referred to Valley Regional Adult Education if they want to obtain their GED or get their high school diploma, or to TEAM, who can help them get medical coverage through the HUSKY program. Numerous parent involvement and education activities are offered, such as the annual PreK and Kindergarten Registration and Literacy Fair, which was held in March 2018. Nearly 20 local agencies were on hand, providing services for parents and their children. The Ansonia PreK program has built strong, lasting partnerships with agencies that provide invaluable resources for Ansonia's families.

Description

The short-term success of the College Prep Program in the school district is in the rapid growth of college courses that is being offered, as well as the increase in College Fairs, college trips, and school success planning that is engaging students from elementary grades through high school. Dr. Carol Merlone, Superintendent of Schools, spearheaded the drive to establish new college-level courses at AHS. “This is an extremely impressive accomplishment by our students. “While our budgets have been extremely tight and we’ve had to make cuts in recent years, we have been able to maintain and expand our college-credit courses thanks to the dedication of our staff and the use of grant funds., she said. “Our students have the opportunity to experience the rigor of college level work, starting in their sophomore years of high school, and this will help prepare them for the next phase of their educational careers.”


Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.


The long-term success of college preparatory programs will be evident in future statistics: How many students who enter college with college preparatory experience remain in college and finish on time (or early) due to the head start they received during their high school years. What we know is that every student who earns college credit will have successfully faced the academic rigor of college course work. In addition, many students save thousands of dollars in college tuition.


Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

The college prep programs are monitored by the Guidance Department of Ansonia High School and Ansonia Middle School, as well as the school administrators, teachers and support staff of these schools as well as the elementary schools.

Description  

The Ansonia High School Music Department serves more than 100 students in Grades 9-12. Students are members of the chorus or the band, as well as the "Vocal Vibes" group, which is student-led.

The teacher behind – or rather, in front – of these students is Maria Tangredi, who has worked for 21 years to build the music program. Ms. Tangredi has built a strong department, revived the AHS marching band, and works tirelessly with her students after school to prepare for three concerts each year at AHS: the Winter Concert in December, the Spring Concert in April, and the Pops Concert in June, featuring the senior members of the class. The AHS marching band perform during home football games, march in the annual Ansonia Memorial Day Parade, and both the chorus and marching band perform at the city’s annual Tree Lighting ceremony.

Thanks to the support of the Katharine Matthies Foundation, the AHS Marching Band was revived in 2003 when uniforms and instruments were purchased, and a second grant in 2012 replaced some minimally worn inventory and added to the band inventory.

In 2006, the AHS marching band was selected by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 597, for a new endowment fund with the Valley Community Foundation. The annual endowment funds, which average $1,300, are used for uniforms, maintenance of equipment, or rental of instruments. According to the 2006 Annual Report of the Valley Community Foundation, the VCF membership support for the AHS band was unanimous. “Our members kept asking each other, 'What has happened to music in the Valley towns? What can we do to bring it back?' This was one way we could offer ongoing support to a worthwhile cause."

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.  

The AHS music department has had a positive impact on the lives of the thousands of parents, students, teachers, and community members who have attended the AHS football games, watched the Ansonia Memorial Day Parade, or attended one of the Music Concerts.

Several AHS music students who have graduated continued their love of music in college, singing in a choral group or performing with the marching band. Ms. Tangredi, who was president of the UConn marching band from 1993 to 1994, is especially proud of the students who are following in her footsteps.

 The quote she selects for every AHS concert program is from Plato: “The business of music should, in some measure, lead to the love of the beautiful.”

Each year, music department students participate in an Adjudication, which is held at the Thomas Edison Middle School in Meriden. In addition, music students compete each year for a seat with the All-State chorus or band. Several students have earned a coveted seat, and others are members of their college chorus or band.

Another example of the program’s success is evident in the students who elect to take music classes and become part of the after school music programs. These students represent the many different cultures and interests of AHS students. Some of the students were born in Ecuador, Italy, Jamaica, Liberia, Turkey and the Dominican Republic. Many of the students are involved in other clubs and school sports teams. In addition, many volunteer for the school or community.

Experience

Dr. Joseph DiBacco has been serving as Ansonia’s Assistant Superintendent of Schools since August 2017. Dr. DiBacco, a Meriden resident who was principal of Shepherd Glen School in Hamden for seven years, replaced Michael Wilson, who is now the Superintendent of Seymour Public Schools. The Ansonia Board of Education appointed Dr. DiBacco at a special meeting on July 20, when they also met him and his family members.

Dr. DiBacco is a graduate of Boston College, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in special education. He obtained three additional degrees from Southern Connecticut State University, including a master’s degree in learning disabilities; his sixth year in educational leadership, and his doctorate in educational leadership in 2014. He has also earned his 093 Superintendent certification and his 085 School Business Administrator certification from the State of Connecticut.

“I feel Dr. Joseph DiBacco not only has the credentials to lead the district, he also has the ability to understand the many challenges that our district is presented with on a daily basis,” Dr. Merlone said when Dr. DiBacco was unanimously appointed by the Ansonia Board of Eduction. “What I like most about Dr. Joe is that he loves people, is approachable and CARES about children and their families.”

Dr. DiBacco returned to his high school alma mater – Orville H. Platt High School in Meriden – to begin his career as an educator. He was a special education teacher for seven years, followed by four years as an administrative intern. In July 2007, he was appointed as an assistant principal at Hamden High School, then assumed the principal’s position at Shepherd Glen, a K-6 elementary school. He also taught for one year at SCSU as an adjunct professor.

Under his leadership, Shepherd Glen was the highest performing Title I school in the district for the last five years. He credits increased parent engagement, the restructuring of Title I support staff, and the use of web based assessments and interventions as contributing factors to improved student learning.

“Dr. DiBacco is bursting with energy, glows with extraordinary insight and is willing to take this journey with me, supporting our students on a daily basis and being grounded in the belief that our students need to remain the focus of all that we do,” Dr. Merlone added.

Through its School Readiness Grant program, the district collaborates with Julia Day Nursery, TEAM Childcare Services, and the YMCA. Thousands of Ansonia school children have benefitted from the environmental science-based lessons provided by the Ansonia Nature Center. For more than 30 years, adults needing high school completion and English As a Second Language have taken classes through Valley Regional Adult Education. Nearly 100 students in the Ansonia Charger Club after school program have enjoyed the facilities and programs offered by the Boys & Girls Club and the Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center. In addition, a new elementary after school program that began in March 2018 has provided 25 children in Grades K-3 the opportunity to participate in small group tutoring, followed by recreation and arts and crafts with the Valley YMCA at Mead School. A group of 21 students in Grades 3-4 at Prendergast are getting tutored, followed by recreational activities at the Boys & Girls Club. 

Ansonia Public Schools has been increasing its partnerships in order to offer its students additional learning opportunities, including earning college credit while attending high school. The district is part of a collaborative effort to offer a manufacturing program in conjunction with Housatonic Community College, as well as an Allied Health program in conjunction with Griffin Hospital in Derby.
