Middle school enrollment changes
The City School District of Albany Board of Education unanimously approved a new middle school feeder pattern at its March 17 meeting. Additional details can be found in the story linked above.
|New feeder pattern (Scenario 25828b)|
|North Albany||ASH||Pine Hills||Eagle Point||Schuyler|
|Hackett||New Scotland||Arbor Hill||Sheridan||Dual|
The City School District of Albany formed a Feeder Alignment Committee of parents and guardians from each district school to work in partnership with district staff to develop criteria and make recommendations for an equitable feeder pattern for all students transitioning from elementary (PK -5) to middle school (grades 6-8).
The district has been working toward this goal in partnership with our community for many years, from both programmatic and facilities perspectives. We are currently engaged in the capital project that will equip North Albany Middle School with school facilities that are on par with our existing middle schools – Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School, and William S. Hackett Middle School. The work of the Feeder Alignment Committee will be essential in moving the district forward on the critical piece of developing an equitable enrollment pattern for all three middle schools.
