September 2, 2015—Cohoes faculty and staff gathered today to kick off a new year and prepare for the students' return next Tuesday. Superintendent Jennifer Spring welcomed everyone with a message of unity and direction: "Together we are charting a new course for Cohoes City School District."
Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services, Peggy O'Shea, joined Spring in celebrating a new year and sharing the district's vision and strategic goals. The duo also outlined a framework of professional development, academic and behavioral supports that will help district leaders, staff and students reach those goals together.
