(Hartford, Conn./ CBS Connecticut) – Beth Schiavino-Narvaez’s two years as Hartford’s school superintendent is coming to an abrupt end.

Narvaez announced today she is leaving the district for a position in instructional development with schools run by the U.S. Defense Department.

Her departure comes just a week after Hartford’s 21,000 students returned to class for the 2016-17 school year.

In interview with WTIC news last month, Narvaez admitted it’s been a challenge given the city’s budget woes.

She said the district has to do more with less and that they’ve had to prioritize needs and wants.

Narvaez says one plus was a reduction in chronic absenteeism and school suspensions.
