Hartford Public Schools will be redesigning for educational excellence, equity and sustainability. Breakthrough Magnet School- North will be restructuring as part of this redesign.  In June of 2017, the Hartford Public Schools voted on the Educational Specifications of the Martin Luther King Jr. building, which included Breakthrough North restructuring to a Prek- Grade 5 magnet school.

Breakthrough North will be transitioning to a PreK- Grade 5 magnet school beginning in the 2018- 2019 school year. As a school, our students and families are our top priority. We have created this Advisory Committee to foster transparency and engagement with our entire school community throughout the resturcturing process.

Advisory Committe Members:
Katherine Leonard- Principal
Lisa Verderame- Dean of Students
Jose Colon- Rivas- Chief Operating Officer
Majorie Davis- Acting Director of the Regional School Choice Office
