Contract for Excellence

The City School District of Albany’s 2022-23 Contract for Excellence plan will continue efforts to improve student achievement.  It also will build capacity to serve students in high-needs schools across the district.

The total contract amount is $1,792,209, the same as prior years. Our full 2022-23 contract spending plan is available for download

Targeted schools

The contract plan targets students with the greatest educational need as identified on the Educational Need Matrix provided by the State Education Department. 

The 2022-2023 contract supports programs and services for students at the following schools:

Social work services

ENL, literacy and math


Contract for Excellence regulations indicate that the contract plan should result in at least a 10% gain in the percent of the target group students achieving the state standards. The target group students are those at the identified schools that did not meet their benchmark for annual progress, denoted by the State Education Department as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
