One of Montgomery County’s top school leaders is a finalist for the superintendency in Hartford, Conn.

Beth Schiavino-Narvaez, one of the deputy superintendents in Montgomery County, is one of two finalists for the top job in Hartford, according to the Harford Courant.

Schiavino-Narvaez has worked in Montgomery County since 2011, when she was hired by Montgomery County Superintendent Joshua P. Starr to be a community superintendent. In that position, she oversaw the Northeast consortium and Sherwood clusters of schools.

She was promoted to deputy superintendent in 2012. Her office oversees schools, supervises principals and coordinates support to schools through six associate superintendents.

“The opportunity to lead, work and serve with so many outstanding colleagues at MCPS strengthened my calling to lead my own district someday,” Schiavino-Narvaez said Saturday in a written statement. “I am honored to have come this far in the Hartford selection process and am looking forward to meeting the community there next week as the process continues.”

In Montgomery, Schiavino-Narvaez serves with two other deputy superintendents, Larry A. Bowers and Kimberly A. Statham. She was a superintendent intern under Starr when he was superintendent in Stamford, Conn.

Th Hartford school board could make its selection as soon as April 17, the newspaper reported.
