The latest news ...

State issues health advisory regarding virus

The New York State Department of Health has issued an advisory related to enterovirus EV-D68, a serious respiratory illness that has been confirmed in more than a dozen children in New York state. There currently are no confirmed cases involving Albany children.

More than 1,000 fathers and father figures flocked to City School District of Albany schools on Tuesday in a show of support for their children’s education.

Proposed new charter school could add

up to $5.6 million to annual district payments

A proposal to open a new 400-student charter elementary school in Albany could add as much as $5.6 million to the City School District of Albany's annual payments to the city's publicly financed, privately operated charter network.


KIPP is proposing to expand its current middle school (grades 5-8) to also serve grades K-4. The application is one of five pending before the SUNY Board of Trustees. The district's charter expenses for the current school year will be nearly $35 million.


The district will hold a public hearing Thursday, Sept. 18 to allow community members to provide feedback on all five applications. The hearing will be at William S. Hackett Middle School from 6-7 p.m. Please visit our District News section for more information.
