Classroom Progress Report

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The final public meetings on reopening the city school district of Albany were held Tuesday with a middle school student forum at 4 p.m. and a forum for parents, guardians, and community members at 6 p.m.

For middle schools in the district, parents will be able to choose whether they want their student taking part in a hybrid learning model or if they want them to only do remote learning.

Students and staff will also wear masks and have daily health screenings.

There are three schools being considered to rotate students for on-site learning. They are O’Neal, Hackett and North Albany.

The district said no decisions have been made, yet, as the state’s Friday deadline to submit reopening plans looms. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has said he will announce final reopening guidance during the first week of August. 

Planning includes teaching methods and delivery of instruction, transportation, health screenings, and cleaning precautions to counteract COVID-19.

The district is asking parents to fill out a survey on about the upcoming school year. They have until August 6 to do so.
