School Board approves bond proposal for May election

Posted on: January 23, 2017

The School Board unanimously voted to send a $159 million bond measure to voters in the May 16, 2017, election.

The measure would:

  • Make upgrades and improvements, including replacing roofs, siding, windows, plumbing, electrical systems in schools around the District.
  • Make energy improvements, including replacing old, inefficient high maintenance heating/ventilation systems, doors, which would save energy costs.
  • Make safety/security upgrades, including automatic door locks, fire alarms, security cameras to improve the safety of students.
  • Make seismic upgrades to enable buildings to better withstand earthquakes.
  • Renovate and/or add classroom space to support vocational/technical classes for all district middle school buildings.
  • Renovate and add classrooms and a cafeteria at Oak Grove Elementary School; purchase property and construct a new elementary school in NE Albany to address growing enrollment and reduce overcrowding.
  • Complete the first phase of West Albany High School’s rebuild that would include new classrooms, commons, auditorium, cafeteria and administrative space; and multipurpose space for vocational/technical education and gymnasium uses at South Albany High School.

The bond proposal is the result of a more than two-year process to identify facility needs in the District. The projects were reviewed by architects and recommended by a community-based District Facilities Advisory Committee (DFAC) that was made up of community members, parents and staff members.

DFAC initially identified more than $250 million in facility needs. This proposal represents the School Board’s priority to balance the most critical needs and the cost to taxpayers. This bond proposal is expected to increase taxes by an estimated $.64 per $1,000 of assessed property value because the 2006 bond is expiring.

For more information, read the resolution and explanatory statement.

Juneteenth!

Posted on: June 16, 2020

Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally recognized celebration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. On June 19, 1865, Galveston, Texas, learned of the Emancipation Proclamation, that the war had ended, and that slaves were now free. This news reached Galveston almost 2 and 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation was made by President Lincoln on January 1, 1863.

A resource page is available to help you and our students celebrate Juneteenth this year.

Juneteenth es la celebración más antigua reconocida a nivel nacional del fin de la esclavitud en los Estados Unidos. El 19 de junio de 1865, Galveston, Texas, se enteró de la Proclamación de Emancipación, que la guerra había terminado y que los esclavos ahora eran libres. Esta noticia llegó a Galveston casi 2 años y medio después de que el Presidente Lincoln hiciera la Proclamación de Emancipación el 1 de enero de 1863.

Hay una página de recursos disponible para ayudarlo a usted y a nuestros estudiantes a celebrar el 15 de junio de este año.
