Hartford Superintendent Job Draws Open Interest
Tim Sullivan, the principal of a Hartford, Conn. magnet school and Christina Kishimoto, Hartford's assistant superintendent, want you to know they're very interested in leading the 26,500-student school district when current superintendent Steven Adamowski leaves this summer.
Why is this noteworthy? Because superintendent searches are usually quite hush-hush. Current district leaders don't want to anger their local school boards, nor do they want to risk the embarrassment of public rejection.
But in Hartford, these administrators are already making a case for themselves, according to articles in the Hartford Courant.
The board has given itself until Feb. 15 to either decide on an internal candidate, or throw open the doors for a nationwide search.
