Future of Credit Diploma Program Uncertain

By Steve Goode

May 20, 2009

The credit diploma program at Hartford Adult Education isn't dead.


But that doesn't mean it's going to live past the end of the school year.

Hartford Superintendent of Schools Steven J. Adamowski has made it clear that he wants the program gone, and the board of education was slated to get a presentation on adult education in the city Monday before beginning discussion on the proposed change.

But a group of students and teachers spoke out about the credit diploma program and the meeting ran long, so the school board never got around to the first reading of the policy change and postponed it and the presentation to its June 2 meeting.

Board member Brad Noel said Wednesday that the teachers and students presented a strong argument for retaining the program and that a decision on its future would likely be made at the school board meeting subsequent to the June 2 presentation.
