From the Superintendent -- Moving forward on behalf of all students, families

A busy first full day on the job for Acting Superintendent Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D., on Jan. 25, 2016, included meeting with the media wtih Board of Education President Kenneth M. Bruce. She shared the following message. Click here to download her remarks in .pdf format.

 

Thank you for taking the time to join us here today as we begin the process of moving our school district forward in the best interest of all of our students and families.

 

We recognize that this is not the position we wish we were in. But it is where we are, and it is the steps and actions we take together from this point forward that will define our organization and our capacity to succeed in achieving our goals.

 

We must remember why we are here. We are here to serve all of our children. There are more than 9,500 young people in our schools who look to the leaders of our school district and our community each day for guidance and support. They look to us as role models. And we owe it to every single one of them to keep moving forward – and to find ways to keep moving forward together no matter our disagreements or differing points of view.

 

We have no choice. Our children need us now.

 

I am honored to have this opportunity to serve our students, families and community in this new role as acting superintendent of the City School District of Albany. This is the city where I was born, it is the city where I live and it is the city to which I have dedicated my entire professional career.

 

My whole career – more than 25 years – has been about what is best for kids. I have been the principal at Myers Middle School since we first opened our doors in 2005. I have been blessed with excellent, committed staff, as are all of our schools district-wide.

 

Everything we have done at Myers has been for the betterment of every student. When we hold a dance. When we plan academic support activities. When we greet the students when they walk in the door every morning.

 

It is all about the students.

 

That always has been Job 1 for me in every position I have held, and it will continue to be Job 1 for me as I am called to this new professional challenge.

 

Thank you.

 

Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D.

Acting Superintendent
