From the Superintendent

Reaffirming our commitment to every student and family

We recognize that these are difficult and confusing days in our country. For all of us.

 

Our nation's changing leadership -- and the sudden, almost daily, shifts in philosophies and ideologies that are accompanying it -- have left many feeling uncertain about how the country views all of its people, or whether the country cares.

 

Many are questioning if this is the America we learned about, or are learning about, in school.

 

A place of freedom and equality.

 

A place of compassion and dignity.

 

A place of honor and character.

 

I would like to reassure you that all of those qualities remain alive and well in the City School District of Albany. I want to reassure every student, every family, every staff member and every community member that you are valued. You are supported. You are loved.

 

Our school district offers many resources for students who have questions or would like additional support. Please always know that you and your children can turn to the caring and compassionate principals and classroom teachers in each of our 17 schools. Our offices of Pupil Personnel Services, ENL and Refugee Services, and Guidance provide additional staff members who are trained and ready to respond to all students' emotional needs.

 

You can contact your child's principal or teacher for more information about resources available at school, or use one of these phone numbers if you have additional questions:

  • Office of Pupil Personnel Services -- 475-6130

  • Office of ENL and Refugee Services -- 475-6147

  • Office of the Superintendent -- 475-6010

 

Whether you or your children were born across town, across the country or across the world, please know that we will continue to do our best every day to make sure you feel at home everwhere in our school district.

 

Our school district is 1,700 employees strong. Through allof our staff resources, we will continue to nurture and support each of our more than 9,600 students. We will strive every day to provide rich learning environments in every classroom in every school, and to give every student the support they need to succeed academically.

 

We will honor the racial and ethnic background of every student, every family and every staff member. We will celebrate all 57 languages that our students speak, and every religion they and their families choose to worship. We will continue to enthusiastically welcome our growing population of immigrants and refugees, and embrace the beautiful cultures and customs that enrich our schools and our city.

 

We will provide safe, supportive schools where everyone is free to grow to their fullest potential and become whoever and whatever they dream to be.

 

No matter how national events unfold around us, in Albany's public schools we will continue to value and defend all of the rich diversity that makes us proud every day to serve this community. Please know that we are always there for you.

Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D.

Interim Superintendent
