School board candidates' forums Oct. 22, Oct. 27

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 23, 2014) -- This year’s candidates for the City School District of Albany Board of Education will participate in two forums leading up to the Nov. 4 election.

 

Four candidates are seeking two seats on the board in the November elections – Kenneth Bruce, Edith Leet, Sharon Rowe and Anne Savage. Bruce currently is serving the final months of the seat vacated when Felicia Green resigned in the spring; he is seeking a full four-year term. Board member Alexandra Streznewski’s term is up at the end of December and she is not seeking re-election.

 

The first forum was held Wednesday, Oct. 22 from at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School. Visit the Times Union website for coverage of the event.

 

The forum was co-sponsored by several community organizations: the Albany City Council Parent-Teacher Association (ACCPTA), the Albany Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the League of Women Voters of Albany County, the George Biddle Kelly Education Foundation, the Capital Area Urban League, the Council of Albany Neighborhood Associations (CANA), the Capital Area Council of Churches and the Reform Jewish Voice of New York State.

 

On Monday, Oct. 27, the Montessori Community Council (Montessori Magnet School's version of a Parent-Teacher Association) will host a forum for the candidates at 7 p.m. at the Pine Hills branch of the Albany Public Library, located at 517 Western Ave.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves 9,000 students in 15 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 students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
