Forty-five media interviews. Forty-six meetings with City Hall officials. A sit-down with an Obama nutrition advisor and White House chef.

Those were just some of the meetings that appeared on schools Chancellor Richard Carranza’s whirlwind schedule during his first 89 days in office, according to a copy provided nine months after an initial public records request.

Many of the entries on Carranza’s schedule show a leader just beginning to make sense of a massive bureaucracy: regular chats with senior officials, meetings with parents and union leaders, and school visits.

But it also shows the extent to which City Hall has played a central role bringing the chancellor up to speed, and the breadth of an all-out public relations blitz designed to quickly introduce the public to a leader new to the city.

During his first three months on the job — from April through June — Carranza met with top City Hall officials dozens of times, including dinner with Mayor Bill de Blasio and at least three conversations with the mayor’s wife, Chirlane McCray, who has worked to raise her public profile.

Close contact with City Hall is not entirely surprising since the mayor hires the chancellor and directly oversees the education department. Yet considerable overlap with City Hall appeared to spook de Blasio’s first-choice chancellor candidate, Miami Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who abruptly turned down the job and later suggested he feared being constrained by the mayor’s staffing picks.

Carranza’s schedule included a stable of senior City Hall officials: first deputy mayor Dean Fuleihan; Emma Wolfe, the mayor’s chief of staff; and Karin Goldmark, a City Hall education advisor whom Carranza later named as a deputy chancellor.
