Our goals in our voices

ALBANY, N.Y. (Sept. 25, 2018) – Outlining visions, missions and goals is important work for any organization – especially those in the business of education. Here at the City School District of Albany, we strive to ensure that these concepts are more than just a roadmap outlined on paper. Together, we strive to build a caring learning environment while partnering with our diverse community. Dedicated staff throughout our organization work collaboratively alongside parents and business partners each and every day to help ensure that success is within reach for all of our students.  

 

To help highlight some of the primary areas of focus in our district priorities for this school year and beyond, we have produced a series of videos to start the school year. In addition to Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams, these videos also feature the voices of individuals – students, staff and community partners – speaking on the topics of school and community safety, student attendance, positive student engagement and the importance of community partnerships.  

 

In addition to our regular digital content highlighting the great things happening throughout our district, we plan to continue this series throughout the year, sharing the voices of our students and those who are working to help them succeed.  

 

The videos below are all available to view and share on Facebook, and can still be accessed without an account. A window may display the text "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log in or create an account," but this can be dismissed by clicking "not now.")
