Hartford Public Schools is committed to supporting the Whole Student and ensures that each student is engaged in an excellent education and receives all the additional academic and social-emotional supports needed. During the summer of 2022, Hartford Public Schools provided a free summer Credit Recovery program to support students in grades 9 through 12 in recovering course credit they might have lost during the regular academic year; allowing them to remain as closely on track as possible with their graduating class cohort.
