Schedule update for music classes

With the complexity of our schedules due to the recent announcement of a 20% reduction in the City School District of Albany's state aid, all four district middle schools are only able to offer general music at the time. 

However, our goal once we are settled into our full-day instructional models beginning in late September is to reorganize our schedules with the intent of offering Band, Orchestra and Chorus at each middle school. Our expectation is that this Phase 2 of our instructional planning for the 2020-21 school year will be in place by mid-October.  

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these details under the difficult circumstances that COVID-19 has presented to us.
