SPEAK UP SURVEY

Dear AUSD parents and community,

This year, for the first time, AUSD is participating in a national survey focused on technology in education in order to better understand our school community's usage of, and opinions about, educational technology.

We are trying to have as many people take the survey as possible in order to gather a broad picture of our community. This includes administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community members. Please be a part of this conversation and take the survey. The survey runs until 1/13/2017.

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

AUSD Staff, Parents, Students, & Community:

The results of the Presidential election have invoked strong emotions in our students that may continue for some time. This is a teachable moment as students of all ages are asking questions that need answering. We encourage parents to seek out helpful resource to answer some of those difficult questions and ease some of their children’s concerns.

Although this election has been challenging for many of us, we can count on the Albany community to be thoughtful, caring and compassionate. Together we will model this behavior for our students. AUSD will continue to offer our support to staff, parents, students, and the Albany community as we move on from this election together.

Superintendent Val Williams
