This is Classified School Employees Appreciation Week. Thank you to all of our dedicated support staff, who make learning possible for students.

Classified employees work with students, educators, parents, volunteers, business partners and community members.

Classified employees support the smooth operation of offices, the safety and maintenance of buildings and property, and the safe transportation, healthy nutrition and direct instruction of students.

Classified employees are educational assistants, office support specialists, bus drivers, custodians, maintenance workers, food servers, translators and more.

Thank you, classified employees, for your work on behalf of GAPS students!

Proposed bond would add instructional space for career skills

Posted on: March 8, 2017

There is a need for skilled workers in our local industries and around the country. Employers are seeking trained workers, and they are working with schools to help build skills that students can build on in college or take directly to the workforce.

If Ballot Measure 22-165 is approved by voters, renovations are planned for all middle schools to add instructional space for career technical, or vocational technical, education.

Both high schools would also get new CTE space. The first phase of the replacement at West Albany High School includes new classrooms, and South Albany High School would get new classrooms and a new multipurpose room/gym.

This video shows the type of programs the schools are considering for expansion.

Find more information about Ballot Measure 22-165.

Memorial Middle School Library presents the 1st annual March Madness!

Staff is also encouraged to vote, but voting is limited to MMS students and staff only.

The Best Book at MMSL will be announced at the assembly on Friday, March 24th!
