District Model for Excellence

We came together with our community – parents, students, teachers, faith-based leaders, businesses and government – to re-imagine and restructure our schools through the District Model For Excellence plan.

We engaged in transparent and open conversations to provide school and city leadership with a broad and deep understanding of our schools.

We looked at our schools and needs as broadly as possible, without focusing solely on indicators like finances, academics and structures, to consider all that is required to come together to create great schools that put every student at the center of his/her learning.

We are addressing questions such as:

  • What does a high-quality school look like?
  • How do we create equitable access to great schools for every child?

Through this process, we identified these four priorities and objectives.

The District Model of Excellence process resulted in a road-map to restructuring Hartford Public Schools into a network of high-quality schools for every student.

In January 2018, our courageous Board of Education unanimously approved this ambitious plan.  You may explore the plan below.
