Rebuilding Albany High School

Investing in our students. Investing in our community. Investing in our future.

MWBE-Workforce Development initiatives

Rebuilding Albany High at a glance

Beginning in April 2018, new construction will include a three-story academic building behind the school as the major element of Phase I. Future construction phases will include a new building for art and music classrooms. The school’s open courtyard also will be enclosed in subsequent phases.

 

Renovations throughout the seven-year project will include a complete makeover of the current three-story academic wing, which will include space for career and technical education programs currently housed three blocks away at Abrookin Career and Technical Center.

 

Other renovations will include completely replacing the school’s heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, adding a new 200-seat balcony to the auditorium and creating new space for physical-education classes, including jogging lanes in the main gym.

 

The fully renovated and rebuilt facility will expand the size of the current building by about 50 percent. Today’s Albany High building, including Abrookin, encompasses about 378,000 square feet; the new and improved Albany High will add about 250,000 square feet of new space.

Rebuilding Albany High School will mean hundreds of construction jobs to our community over a seven-year period. The district is committed to helping City of Albany residents, and especially residents of color, acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to get these jobs, as well as other construction-related jobs throughout our community and region.

 

The district also is committed to helping minority- and woman-owned businesses enterprises (MWBEs) be positioned to take advantage of these opportunities as well, both in the district and throughout the region and state.
