The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week.

Columbia Ethnic Coalition

Columbia’s Ethnic Coalition at the 2018 STOP Conference (L to R): Kaitlyn Velardi, Nicole Presti, Micaella Barrett, Abby Melaragno, Marissa Young, Bailey Campbell and Alyssa Schweigert.

A contingent of Columbia High School’s Ethnic Coalition club attended the 2018 STOP (Students Together Opposing Prejudice) Conference at Siena College on Friday with more than 200 students from 30 schools in the Capital Region.

The annual conference is a part of Siena’s MLK Lecture Series and is organized in conjunction with and facilitated by the Anti-Defamation League’s “A World of Difference” Institute.

This year’s conference focused on bias, both explicit and implicit, and provided students practical tools to help them deal with such biases when confronted with them.

In the coming weeks, the Ethnic Coalition plans to develop an action plan to implement some of the shared ideas at Columbia.
