Online learning during COVID-19 closure

Below are resources for students to use while schools are closed due to COVID-19. In addition to academics, you will also find social-emotional resources that may be helpful to students during this time.

We will be using Google Classroom to continue moving forward with new instruction for students at every grade level while schools are closed due to COVID-19

More information on Google Classroom is available here.

Please note that the City School District of Albany can only guarantee the safety of a students' digital footprint and identity if they are using one of the district-approved applications located in Clever or within the Google Education Suite. The use of other websites/applications is at the discretion of the parent. We strongly encourage you to read the privacy policies of any non-district approved applications to ensure that your child's identity is properly protected.  

The district’s Technology Help Desk may assist students and families with issues related to connecting a Chromebook to wireless access points, or with student login to the Chromebooks or the Clever suite of applications.

You can reach the Technology Help Desk from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. each weekday at (518) 475-6195. 

Please note that the Help Desk cannot assist with matters related to use, content or activities within any of the district instructional applications or Google Classroom. Questions regarding the use of Google Classroom, instructional resources, learning tasks or expectations related to instructional content need to be directed to each student’s teacher or principal.
