On the first day of school New Haven Public Schools welcomed 21,922 kids back into the classroom with the help of many community partners. More than 300 buses hit the road bringing students from all across New Haven as well as surrounding suburbs to school. New Haven teachers, principals, staff, families and community partners are coming together to give all kids a chance to rise to success in college, career and life. School Change 2.0 is about raising the bar for all of our students and taking collective responsibility for their success.
