Dr. Wilkins accepts SED leadership role

ALBANY, N.Y. (Aug. 30, 2017) -- Interim Superintendent Kimberly Young Wilkins, Ed.D., has announced her resignation from the City School District of Albany to accept a leadership position with the State Education Department.

 

Dr. Wilkins will serve as State Ed’s assistant commissioner for innovation and school reform, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia announced Wednesday. Dr. Wilkins’ resignation from the district is effective Thursday; she begins her new position Friday.

 

“We are grateful to Dr. Wilkins for her leadership throughout her career, and especially during the 18 months that she served as our interim superintendent,” said Board of Education President Sue Adler.

 

“Dr. Wilkins has always been a tireless and dedicated advocate for all of our students and families. Albany is a better school district, and a better community, for all of her many, many contributions over the past 25 years.”

 

Dr. Wilkins started her career in Albany’s public schools as a high school teacher in 1994 and has served as an administrator since 1997 – first as an assistant principal at the former Philip Livingston Magnet Academy, then as principal at the former School 16 (now Pine Hills Elementary School) and as the founding principal of Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School beginning in 2005.

 

She served as the district’s interim superintendent from January 2016 until Aug. 14, when Kaweeda G. Adams began as the district’s superintendent.

 

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 nearly 9,700 students in 18 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.
