New School Year, New Superintendent for Hartford Schools

Back to school week continues here across Connecticut and Hartford students return to the classroom on Tuesday.

And there's a new face in the mix in the Capitol City, Hartford's new Superintendent Dr. Beth Narvaez.

And her arrival comes with a promise to families, that every child will attend a high-performing school -- with no exceptions.

Narvaez replaces Christina Kishimoto as the schools' top leader.

She says she's committed to closing the achievement gap. That comes at a critical time for Hartford schools, years into ongoing efforts to make changes.

And Tuesday, she and other faculty are going to start making those promises count as they welcome back the city's 22,000 students.

And there will be some familiar faces in Hartford schools -- Lieutenant Governor Wyman and Mayor Segarra.

They're going to tour a handful of schools officials say will be critical to the district's achievement gains this school year.
