Board sets 2017 tax rate

The City School District of Albany’s Board of Education has set the 2017 tax rates. Voters approved the total tax levy in May, and 2017 is the second time in a row the board has proposed, and voters have approved, a no-increase levy.

 

While the levy was approved by the voters in May, the actual tax paid by individual property owners is set in August, and is impacted by a number of factors including changes to assessed values. This year, despite the no-increase tax levy, these factors result in school taxes going up for homeowners, while business owners have an offsetting reduction in taxes.(MORE)

 

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.

 

Two important steps in that process have been the hirings of Independent Monitor Maxine Fantroy-Ford, Ed.D. (at left in photo above), and Chief Ombudsperson Valarie Ann Scott (at right). 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.
