Kelvin Roldán, who recently earned a doctor of education leadership from Harvard University and has worked in low-performing schools in Hartford, Connecticut, will step in to the new position of deputy commissioner for system transformation.
Jennifer Carney, the director of curriculum for Pawtucket Schools, will become director of school system planning improvement.
Roldán and Carney will work in the just-minted division
