The Board of Trustees of Albany County School District #1 voted to move all schools to Tier 1, or five days a week, in-person learning, starting on Monday, March 22.

The trustees spent over an hour discussing the motion.

One topic under consideration was the upcoming availability of vaccines for teachers and staff, and how that would affect reopening.

Trustees cited the opinions of Dr. Alexia Harrist, the State Health Officer, and Dr. Jean Allais, the Albany County Health Officer. Both doctors agreed that it is safe for schools to move forward with Tier I.
