A message from Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams

September 2017

 

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

Each September offers a new beginning for all of us. This year marks a particularly noteworthy beginning for me as I join the City School District of Albany as your superintendent. I am thrilled to be here!

 

We have so many great things happening in our schools of which to be proud, ranging from quality early childhood programs for our youngest learners to the steady increase in our high school graduation rate.  We also can be proud of the academic choices we offer from magnet elementary schools to college- and career-prep programs like AVID in middle school and Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate offerings at Albany High School.

 

Throughout our school district, we have a shared focus on raising achievement for all as we are collectively and collaboratively work on behalf of our entire community.

 

Yes, we have our challenges; however, confronting and overcoming our challenges will require a collective will, which always believes in the possibility of each and every child we serve. All of us – educators, families and community members – play an important, critical part in the success of our students.

 

We have amazing staff in all roles, in all buildings dedicated to all of our students and our district. We have outstanding community partners committed to the same goals. Most importantly, we have exceptional students and families striving for the best for themselves and our entire community.

 

All the pieces are here. We are now charged to move forward in a positive, collaborative manner to join these pieces together seamlessly.

 

Together, we will help our children receive a quality education. Together, we will teach our children to embrace, own and be empowered by their learning. Together, we will guide our children to be productive, successful citizens in school and in life.

 

I look forward to working alongside you on behalf of all our students. Have a great school year!

 

Yours in education,

Kaweeda G. Adams

Superintendent of Schools
