Our strategy for safety and success.
Dear Families & Valued Members of the Green Tech Community,
While the COVID crisis has been experienced globally, it is no secret that some communities are affected more than others. Challenges that provide obstacles for some families create impossibilities for others. The issues facing Black and minority families describe some of the most challenging in the U.S. and the data can be unclear on how schools play a role in keeping Albany families safe and finding our way through.
As the community of New York State works together to determine a way forward for students across the state, we have steadily been working at creating a number of approaches to re-open for a successful 2020-21 year. We've used the best of our administrative expertise, we've employed some of the very academic skills we teach these young men --math and science-- to flesh out how we can meet that goal, the risks, and the necessities such as take-no-prisoners cleaning strategies and class-size approach. We've also relied on our deep understanding of the families of Green Tech to anticipate your needs.
We have some great strategies on the table. But it doesn't replace your voice. I invite you to take this survey, to let us know your needs so that, when the time comes, we can have in place the best strategy to help Albany's young men go the distance.
