Welcome back to another great year at West Albany High School! There are many exciting things happening this fall, so please take time to explore the link below and to visit the WAHS website and Counseling webpage to stay up to date.
The start of the year can be a fun, yet stressful, time for students and families. We encourage you to take some extra time to talk with your student about their first few days of school and how their schedules, teachers, and relationships are starting out.
Our counselors are always available to talk with students and parents about any issues that come up throughout the school year. Some of the most common reasons to speak with your school counselor include: Grades, credits to graduate, colleges and post high school options, class schedule, relationships, community resources, and therapy resources.
We look forward to working with your student this school year!
Season tickets are $40.00 per seat and can be purchased in our front office.
Lucas Risinger, who starts his second year with West Albany High School this fall, teaches biology and physical science, and has been selected for a five-year fellowship from the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation, the only one of 37 Fellows for 2017 to be tapped from the Pacific Northwest.
The District recently sold the bonds approved by voters for school construction projects. There was very good news: they were able to get more for the money through premium bonds, a higher cost bond for investors. For GAPS taxpayers, this means that an additional $28 million will be available for projects at no additional cost to them.
The District also qualified for $6.9 million in state matching funds that became available after other districts with higher priority for the funds failed to pass their measures. These funds will ensure that the tax rate stays at the level that was estimated prior to the election.
Planning for the projects is on a fast track. Design drawings, timelines and project details will be published this fall. We’ll publish the news as we get it.
