BRIDGEPORT - Students from Bassick High School in Bridgeport held a protest yesterday over the transfer of their assistant principal.

The students are upset that Joyce Hennessey was reassigned to Harding High School for next year.

School officials say her transfer has to do with school improvement grants as well as efforts to up test scores.

The district's superintendent of schools, Doctor John Ramos, says he'll give the issue serious consideration.
