“This is great news for Hartford, especially coming off the heels of the UConn victory parade yesterday where over 200,000 fans came out to show their support for the men and women’s basketball teams.

“Hartford was home of the Women’s Big East Conference for nine years, that same enthusiasm and energy still exist here and they’ve gotten bigger. We look forward to hosting all the fans again and letting them experience all that Hartford has to offer.”

Mayor Segarra Statement on Parents Decision Regarding Turnaround Plan for Clark Elementary School

(April 8, 2014) Today, Mayor Segarra made the following statement regarding the proposed turnaround plan for John C. Clark Elementary School:

“It has always been my belief that when a school partners with its families and community groups, children will stay in school longer and have a better chance of success. A critical component of a providing a quality education is making sure the parents have a voice in the school process. Parents who are actively involved in their children’s education are helping to build a foundation for their children’s future success. The parents at Clark Elementary School have actively engaged in discussions surrounding the reform process for the school and have made their desires clear.

“The Clark School Governance Council voted unanimously in favor of partnering with the Friendship Public Charter Schools to assist in the school’s turnaround work. It is disappointing to see that despite this clear recommendation from the School Governance Council, the Clark Turnaround Committee failed to reach consensus on a plan that would have provided the Clark Elementary School with the resources that are needed for a successful turnaround plan. As Mayor, I support the School Governance Council’s recommendation to partner with Friendship Public Charter Schools to undertake this important work.

“I am asking that Stefan Pryor, Commissioner of Education for the State of Connecticut, exercise his statutory authority and contact Friendship to formally request that they reconsider being the lead partner with Clark Elementary School.”
