The City School District of Albany Board of Education confirmed the following administrative changes for North Albany Middle School on Thursday night, part of district-wide staffing reductions caused by devastating anticipated reductions in state aid that could total as much as $23.2 million for the 2020-21 school year.
North Albany Principal Julie Barber will transfer to a district-wide administrative position where she will oversee virtual instruction. Andrea Piper will transfer from her position as principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School and become the new principal at North Albany beginning Sept. 29.
North Albany Assistant Principal April Stokes will not return for the 2020-21 school year due to the reductions, effective Sept. 25. Emma Steckman will transfer from her post as assistant principal at Philip Schuyler Achievement Academy and become the new assistant principal at North Albany beginning Sept. 29.
