North Albany AVID work recognized

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 3, 2017) – Congratulations to North Albany Academy teacher George Stahler, who has been selected as one of the keynote speakers at this summer’s AVID Summer Institute in Philadelphia.  

 

AVID, or Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a proven educational system in use across the country designed to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.  

 

Stahler, who has been teaching in the City School District of Albany for 29 years, has been one of the driving forces behind the success of AVID at North Albany since Principal Lesley Buff began implementing it there two years ago.  

 

He will now have the opportunity to proudly represent our district and share his AVID experiences with educators across the northeast when they gather for their annual conference.

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
