Superintendent Christina Kishimoto, who had lived on a farm in Andover with her husband and daughter, has sold that home and has moved to the city's West End.

Schools spokesman David Medina said Kishimoto has been a Hartford resident for less than two weeks.

In June, Mayor Pedro Segarra made an issue of her residency when he requested in a letter to board of education Chairman David MacDonald that her contract require her to live in Hartford.

"As the highest paid city employee, and the person who is directly charged with the great responsibility of educating our youth, it seems fitting that there be a requirement that the superintendent move to Hartford within a reasonable period of time," Segarra wrote.

Kishimoto's salary for her first year as schools chief is $215,000, and her contract, signed June 29, has no residency stipulation.

According to an online real estate listing, the Kishimotos put the Andover property on the market in May. They listed the home at $475,000.

Former Superintendent Steven Adamowski has lived in the city's downtown on Trumbull Street.
