District seeks input to sharpen '2020 Vision'
All are invited to join Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard, Ph.D., at community meetings in December and January to discuss the City School District of Albany’s draft roadmap for the future – “2020 Vision.”
The first meeting will be Monday, Dec. 16 from 6-8 p.m. at the Alternative Learning Center in Arbor Hill. Visit our District News section for a complete schedule and more information.
The community conversations, to be held alongside open forums for district staff members, will share details about 2020 Vision in its current form, and gather feedback to inform revisions to the roadmap. The board is expected to consider a final version of 2020 Vision at its Feb. 6 meeting.
The strategic roadmap includes a new mission, core values, vision and strategic directions to guide the district’s work to become the best urban school district in America by 2020.
