The City School District of Albany is planning five opportunities during May for families to learn more and ask questions about proposed recommendations for grading and attendance policies and practices at the secondary level.

Two of these meetings will be held virtually and three will be in-person, with a variety of scheduled times to provide flexibility for families:

You also may use our online Feedback form to share your comments about the updates that have been proposed. Students in grades 6-12 also will have opportunities to discuss the recommendations and provide their input during social studies class periods.

The district formed a Grading and Attendance Task Force last winter to review these areas for high school and middle school students. Task force members presented their initial recommendations at the Board of Education meeting May 4.
