What to Know About Hartford Schools Restructuring Plan

The Superintendent of Hartford Public Schools is unveiling big plans that will affect hundreds of students and teachers in the district.

At tonight’s 5:30 PM Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Leslie Torres-Rodriguez will give her recommendations which will include restructuring, reconfiguring and consolidating schools.

Under her recommendations, 78 percent of students have the option to stay in their current programs, 9 percent would move to a different location and 13 percent would move to a different program and location.

The public is welcome to attend tonight’s meeting, which will be held at the Bulkeley High School auditorium.

The changes being proposed by the superintendent would all happen within the next 3 years.

The district operates on $400 million dollars each year. HPS spokesperson, Pedro Zayas, said the proposed changes would save the district about $15 million a year.

NBC Connecticut has attached the superintendent’s proposals, which list recommendations for each school in the district.
