Is there a way to get 11 credits senior year. I failed one class and waited a year on another and am afraid that I wont be able to graduate. So basically will I be allowed to graduate if I can’t get the 11 credits.

A. Contact your counselor.  There are way too many variables for graduation and specific credits in certain areas.  Also, by working with the counselor, you may be options for June vs. August graduation.

I think the dress code at our school is completely unnecessary. Sometimes I feel really good about myself and want to wear something I like, why can’t I? I get that we cant show up in undergarments but I mean not being able to wear spaghetti straps, or a partially open back because you might see a bra strap is ridiculous. I feel like the administration doesn’t realize how hot it gets in the rooms with no air conditioning in summer. Especially when I have a little bit of space between my shorts and shirt and get dress coded for “exposing my midriff”. How is it fair?

I would just like to know why the 6th grade teachers of Acadia (not sure about the other schools) didn’t get the cases, or at least weren’t directed to where they could buy them. It would greatly help them, as the cases Shen bought for us were amazing. Thank you.

I read that Dr. Robinson and a few members of our BOE met with Clifton Park town supervisor Phil Barrett and town lawyers to discuss a possible deal on the 34 acres of land currently owned by Shen. Another meeting is set for June 22nd. It appears that Shen. has not designated anyone to negotiate this deal. Will that decision be made by our BOE or the Superintendent?
