HARTFORD — Hartford community members debated whether the school district’s mascot merited a change during a special meeting Monday.

Hartford Public School Superintendent Kelly Millin issued a recommendation last week to change the district’s mascot, which is known as “Indians.” After a brief presentation from the superintendent, the remainder of Monday’s meeting was dedicated to public comment.
