Principal Jones announces resignation
Stephen and Harriet Myers Principal Malik Jones has accepted a position in another school district and will be stepping down at the end of this school year. 

 

"Please know that I remain fully committed to all of our students and each of your families," Jones said. "I am looking forward to a strong and successful finish to our school year.

 

"This decision has not come easy for me. It has been a pleasure to serve you and your children this school year, and to serve all of the students and families I have had the opportunity to work with during my more than 13 years in the City School District of Albany. Albany has been my professional home throughout my career. It has helped me appreciate the importance of education, high-quality teaching and learning, and educational leadership. This is an exceptional community that believes in the most important assets that we have – our children.

 

"I will always hold the district and Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School close to my heart for all of the opportunities they have afforded me to learn and grow personally and professionally. I have enjoyed the relationships I have built with our students, faculty and staff, and each of you during my time at Myers. This is an amazing community of learners, educators and families.  

 

"The district will begin the process to look for a principal for Myers immediately, with a goal of having your new principal appointed by July 1. The district will keep you updated on that process.

 

"Thank you for all of the support you have given me during my time at Myers. I look forward to continuing to serve our school community through the end of the school year, and I wish everyone great success in 2019-20 and beyond."
