General

  • Principal Ritchie's Friday Food for Thought: As a global community, it is essential for us to become conscious of our social identities, cultures, biases, stereotypes, prejudices and perspectives and how this impacts others. Make positive connections with all Albany High school students with your actions and words. Next week, join me by "Starting with Hello" and contribute to our global climate of respect and acceptance.

  • At the September 11, 2018 Board of Education meeting, the Board appointed the members of the Budget Advisory Committee (BAC).
