Better style would be to import the class from the module in the first place:

    from baseClass import baseClass

    # ...

    class derivedClass(baseClass):
        # ...

Better yet would be to put both classes in the same file in the first
place.  Python isn't Java, where each class is an independent
compilation unit.  There is no reason to put each class in its own
separate module, and it tends to cause namespace confusion as you have
