Interested in going #allinforalbany? There a variety of ways families and community partners can get involved with the success of our district.
The City School District of Albany welcomes volunteers to lend their skills and experience to a wide range of activities that support teachers and staff in all of our schools and throughout the district.
The Albany Booster Club was created in 2000 by parents to provide financial assistance and support for extracurricular activities offered in the City School District of Albany.
Today, the all-volunteer, non-profit group supports a variety of activities, clubs, programs, scholarships and equipment purchases throughout the district. It also sponsors the annual Falcon 5K and Fun Run/Walk held in September.
The Albany Booster Club depends on help from families, staff and community members. Booster club volunteer activities include working in the concession stand at athletic events, selling raffle tickets at concerts and more.
The Albany Fund for Education is a non-profit charitable organization that raises funds for dozens of innovative programs supporting the mission of the City School District of Albany.
Since it began in 1998, AFE has invested in innovative programs that build equity and contribute to quality education in our schools.
AFE has partnered with more than 60 community organizations and hundreds of individuals to provide Albany students with mentoring and career explorations, after-school reading opportunities, programs to enhance health and well-being, and art and music programs.
This support gives students, teachers and community members opportunities to work together to enhance the educational experience for all students in Albany's public schools.
The City School District established the Hall of Fame in 2009 to recognize accomplished graduates, exceptional district staff people and community members whose efforts support Albany's public schools.
Do the Right Thing: recognizing our students
We have partnered with the Albany Police Department and the City of Albany on “Do the Right Thing,” an initiative that acknowledges middle and high school students for their accomplishments, positive behavior and good deeds.
Adult Continuing Education
To encourage people to become lifelong learners, the City School District of Albany offers the community a variety of continuing education courses taught at Albany High School on Wednesday and Thursday evenings in the fall, winter and spring. Additionally, we offer high school equivalency test prep to individuals studying for the TASC exam (formerly known as GED).
The philosophy of Parent University is that parenting, like other types of education, is a lifelong learning process.
