Though the Board of Education previously voted to allow for Moylan Montessori to move beyond city limits, permanently, it now seems that the push to find a Hartford location for it has been revived, with Thom Deller reportedly looking into four or five sites.
Now, the Luke Bronin campaign is questioning the delay in finding an appropriate permanent home for the school. Bronin says, ““The City of Hartford has known for years that Moylan Montessori needed a new home, but kicked the can down the road year after year — and then decided that there was no option but to move this quality, local public school to West Hartford. ”
The majority of students attending Moylan Montessori live in the Behind the Rocks neighborhood, not exactly neighboring the site voted for on North Main in West Hartford.
Bronin says, “This is a moment for leadership, and I urge the Mayor to identify a specific, suitable site before it’s too late to keep Moylan in Hartford – and before Hartford loses a quality local school.”
