62 Hartford Public Schools Seniors Earn Diplomas Through Summer Programming and Additional Supports

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 2019, 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.

 

Chief Academic Officer Dr. Madeline Negrón celebrates with the eager graduates.

At the Hartford Public Schools Summer Graduation ceremony on Thursday, August 1, 2019, 62 students received their diplomas. Graduates are from schools including: Bulkeley High School, Culinary Arts Academy, Global Communications Academy, Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy, Hartford Public High School, High School Inc., Journalism & Media Academy, Pathways Academy of Technology & Design, and Sport and Medical Sciences.

28 of the 62 graduates received additional supports from Hartford Public High School’s Student Success Center.

Speakers included Superintendent Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez, Janice Castle (Director of the Office of Community Engagement for the City of Hartford), and student Shonice Perrin, 2019 graduate from HPHS and participant in the HPHS Student Success Center.
