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

The mission of the City School District of

knowledge and skills necessary for success. The district serves nearly
9,700 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to
neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and
programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for
