ALBANY - Elementary schools in the Albany City School District are full of students for the first time since March.
The district has completed its phased reopening, and Tuesday was the first full day of in-person learning.
The district began the school year virtually for all students, but grade by grade starting brining in elementary students for in-person learning.
Grades 7 through 12 will remain virtual due to budget cuts.
The district is anticipating a 20% cut in state aid, which means around $23 million.
They let more than 200 employees go last week.
Hear the superintendent's thoughts about that by watching the video of Emily DeVito's story.
