Enrollment changes planned for 2015-16

to address growing elementary populations

In an effort to balance growing enrollment at the elementary and middle-school levels, the City School District of Albany will implement changes at three elementary schools for the 2015-16 school year.

 

The changes for next school year will be at New Scotland Elementary School, Pine Hills Elementary School and Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology (TOAST). All three schools currently have no additional classroom space to accommodate their growing student populations without changes.

 

“We believe these solutions for 2015-16 will allow us to provide the least possible impact for one year while providing all students with the best possible learning environments,” said Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard, Ph.D. Please visit our District News section to read more.

 

Free breakfast, lunch

for all district students

All City School District of Albany students are eligible to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day at their school during the 2014-15 school year.

 

That's because all district schools have been approved to take part in the Community Eligibility Provision, a program available through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program.

 

The program allows any district student to receive one complete breakfast and one complete lunch at no charge (although extra food or milk is an extra cost). (MORE)

 

Calendar celebrates extraordinary students

Some of the faces in this year's calendar might look familiar. One might belong to a neighbor, a friend or a kid who shoveled your driveway last winter. Perhaps you saw another compete on the field or perform onstage.

 

They are the faces of your community. And they are the faces of exceptional students in the City School District of Albany. (MORE)

 

Contact state with STAR questions

Albany homeowners denied a School Tax Relief (STAR) exemption should contact the state Department of Tax and Finance if they want to challenge the decision. The phone number is 457-2036.

 

Tax and Finance officials have informed more than 1,200 Albany taxpayers that they won’t receive a STAR exemption in their school tax bills because they failed to meet registration requirements. (MORE)
