Contacting Troy Public Schools
We welcome and encourage the active participation of the parents/guardians of our students, in addition to input from the community. However, in order for the District to efficiently and effectively respond to your concerns, we ask that you use the procedures outlined in the “District Procedure for Channeling Parent Concerns“. This has proven to be most effective for you and for us. General number: 518-328-5052
- Classroom Concerns: If there is a concern about an issue in the classroom, parents/guardians are encouraged to meet with the teacher first. Communication at this level often resolves the matter.
- Building Concerns: If there is a concern about general school operations and policies, or if meeting with a teacher is either inappropriate or does not resolve the concern, parents/guardians are encouraged to meet with the building Principal or Assistant Principal.
