A message from Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams

August 20, 2018

 

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!

It is my pleasure to present this year’s calendar and welcome you to the 2018-19 school year in the City School District of Albany!

 

Please take time to review the contents of our annual calendar and mark your own calendars with the exciting events and activities we have scheduled. You will discover a wealth of information about programs, events and activities in your child’s school and throughout the district.

 

While you page through the calendar, please take note of the students pictured each month. These exceptional young people are representative of the outstanding talent and commitment of our student body. They embody our belief in the potential of every student and our shared desire to raise achievement and engagement for each student and family.

 

We strive each day to be a district of excellence with caring relationships and engaging learning experiences that provide equitable opportunities for all students to reach their potential. We use culturally responsive education practices that consider students’ cultural backgrounds to guide teaching and learning. We differentiate instruction, meaning we analyze individual student needs and adjust how and what we teach based on those needs.

 

In addition, we consider a student’s social and emotional development to be as important as his or her academic development as we strive to educate the whole child.

 

Our mission is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success as we prepare our students for college and careers.

We have amazing faculty and staff in all roles and in all buildings who are dedicated to our students and our district. We have outstanding community partners committed to our goals.

 

Most importantly, we have exceptional students and families striving for the best for themselves and our community.

 

Let’s have a fantastic school year. I look forward to working alongside all of you in 2018-19! Together, we are all in for Albany!

 

Yours in education,

Kaweeda G. Adams

Superintendent of Schools
