Hartford Community Invited to Take Part in Superintendent Search

The search is on for a new superintendent of schools in Hartford and Mayor Pedro Segarra is encouraging people to attend a search committee forum today.

The search is on for a new superintendent of schools in Hartford and Mayor Pedro Segarra is encouraging people to attend a search committee forum today.

“Expanding educational opportunities for every one of Hartford’s children is the biggest priority we have,” Mayor Segarra said in a statement. “This forum allows Hartford residents and parents to learn how each candidate plans to serve as superintendent and how they will ensure that our young people receive the high quality education they deserve.”

The former superintendent, Christina Kishimoto, has taken the superintendent job in a school system outside Phoenix, Arizona and is spending the last three months of her contract on vacation.

Jacqueline Jacoby, a retired Glastonbury superintendent, is filling in through June 30.

Segarra is asking residents, teachers and members of the business community to attend the public forums with the superintendent search committee and the superintendent candidates today at Capital Community College, at 950 Main St, Hartford. The meetings are in the 11th Floor Auditorium.

There are three sessions today.

The one for members of the Hartford community will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. RSVP to events@achievehartford.org
