Rebuilding Albany High School
Three-year planning process provides opportunities for input, feedback

After more than a decade of discussion about how new facilities would best serve Albany High School students for generations to come, the City School District of Albany began in November 2012 planning for a proposal to rebuild and enlarge the 41-year-old school.

 

Designed in the 1960s and built in the early 1970s, the school no longer can meet teaching and learning needs of today's students, and is too small to serve the school's rapidly growing student population. It is falling apart in many areas and, like many public facilities across the state and nation, presents safety challenges in today’s world.

 

The district's process of Re-Imagining Albany High School in partnership with the community included dozens of small- and large-group meetings, an online community survey and numerous public updates at Board of Education meetings throughout the three-year process. Even before the process of Re-Imagining Albany High School officially began, an ad hoc High School Facilities Advisory Committee studied options for a completely new or renovated Albany High during the winter and spring of 2012. That committee, made up of 38 representatives from the community, focused on the options of renovating the current high school and building a completely new high school campus. You can download that May 2012 report in .pdf format.

 

Please follow the links below to read more about the process that led to the proposal Albany voters narrowly defeated (a 92-vote margin out of nearly 13,000 cast) on Nov. 3, 2015:
