District reaffirms commitment

to safeguarding all students' rights

The City School District of Albany applauds our state government, law and education leaders' strong opposition to what Gov.

"The City School District of Albany absolutely will continue to protect transgender students and all of our students from discrimination and harassment -- because it's still the law in New York in spite of this misguided federal action, and, most importantly, because it will always be the right thing to do," Dr. Wilkins said.

to suspension disparities

In response to the report of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the City School District of Albany has reaffirmed its commitment to changing discipline practices and procedures that have perpetuated disproportionate suspension rates for black students and students with disabilities.
