Distance Learning

In the event that Capital Region schools are ordered to remote learning, this page will be a source for all school to home communication. The information below demonstrates how ASCA managed remote learning March 2020 - June 2020. Currently, this page is an archive of ASCA's three phases of remote learning. With new guidance from New York State's Education Department pertaining to attendance and instructional requirements pertaining to hybrid and remote learning, ASCA's remote learning plans will be enhanced to improve instructional practices and learning outcomes. 

Distance Learning Material's Pick-up Information: If your child is in need of materials or a Chromebook, please email office@ascaalbany.org or principal@ascaalbany.org to arrange a pick-up.
