WriterCoach Connection Grant

Albany Writer Coach Connection Severe budget cuts forced the Albany Unified School District to divert parcel-tax revenue to cover core operating expenses. The cuts to Albany Middle School included WriterCoach Connection. The AMS Site Council, the AMS PTA, and the Albany Education Foundation generously teamed up to allocate scarce funds for a limited coaching program at AMS for spring, providing writer coaches to help all eighth-grade students with their I-Search projects. On Coaching days, the Albany Middle School library is filled with smiles and abuzz with communication and writing.
