Albany High renovations move ahead

with pool groundbreaking ceremony

The City School District of Albany began renovations Tuesday on the pool facility at Albany High School, a highly anticipated next step in the overall plan to expand and renovate the city’s only public high school.


“Today’s groundbreaking for our pool building represents another step forward for Albany High School, for our school district and for our entire community,” said Interim Superintendent Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D.


Please visit our District News section to read more, including an update on the major Rebuilding Albany High School project that will begin in 2018.


Jan. 10 vote planned

for tax-free renovation project

Faced with growing enrollment and urgent space needs, the City School District of Albany Board of Education has approved a $6.5 million facilities referendum that would convert an existing district building to a middle school. If approved, the work would have no impact on taxes.


The vote on renovations to 50 North Lark St., will be held Jan. 10. The renovations would be paid for with about $1.3 million from the district’s Capital Reserve Fund and about $5.2 million in state aid. Please visit our District News section to learn more.


Albany High lottery information

Applications are available for the lottery to determine placement in Albany High School’s four academies for the 2017-18 school year.


The Albany High lottery is open to all incoming freshmen and new students, as well as to current Albany High students wishing to change academies for next school year. Students need to submit a lottery application to increase their chances of entering the academy of their choice.


The academies are enrolled through a lottery that will be held Dec. 8. The lottery application deadline is Nov. 14. Please visit our District News section for more information, including important dates in the application process.

District responding

to suspension disparities

In response to the report of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the City School District of Albany has reaffirmed its commitment to changing discipline practices and procedures that have perpetuated disproportionate suspension rates for black students and students with disabilities.

Please visit our Assurance of Discontinuance section to read more, and to find out how to contact the chief ombudsperson if you have complaints about student discipline.
