Summer school 2016

The City School District of Albany offers summer-school programs for students in elementary school, middle school and high school. The district also offers specialized programs for students with disabilities and "newcomer" students who are English-language learners. Many of these programs are designed to help students meet the state's rising academic standards and tougher graduation requirements.

 

In 2016, the district will offer a range of programs at 10 schools. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at every location.

 

Transportation will be provided for every school serving students entering kindergarten-grade 8. Transportation will be provided for high school students that live more than 1.5 miles away from the summer-school program location.
