From the Superintendent

2016-17: A year of new beginnings

The 2016-17 school year represents a fresh start for the City School District of Albany.

 

Each school year provides an opportunity for new beginnings for all of us regardless of our age or how we spend our days. Whether we are administrators, teachers, staff members, students, parents or guardians, it’s an opportunity for us to reflect on what we want to do better as we all strive for personal growth and achievement.

 

One of my goals in 2016-17 as interim superintendent is to have a laser focus on academic achievement for all of our children.

 

When all children become “our” children, we all see them as individuals worthy of all of our attention, our efforts and our love as we prepare them for academic excellence. We all need to take an interest in the success of, and want the best for, all our children. By recognizing and accepting our children, it means we – family members, school personnel, neighbors, businesses and our students themselves – all are responsible for their success.

 

A wise leader, Mahatma Gandhi, once said, “A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”

 

We all need to be “fired up” in our goal to raise the academic achievement of each and every one of one of our 9,500 students. We all need to have a passion to change the course of history for our students by helping each of them acquire the knowledge and skills they need for their success.

 

Let’s make 2016-17 a great year for our children. Together.

Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D.

Interim Superintendent
