About Our District

The Syracuse City School District (SCSD) is setting a higher bar for students and staff alike – and doing more than ever to help them reach it. We serve a richly diverse student body – our students speak over 70 languages, and 4 in 5 are low-income – and we believe every single student deserves a vibrant education. That’s why we’re going all in to make Syracuse the most-improved urban district in America. It won’t be easy, but it’s exciting. If you’re energized by our ambitious goals, and by the challenge of charting a new future for Syracuse, join us.

Our Commitment to Diversity

At the Syracuse City School District, we believe it’s in the interest of both students and the public to have a staff which is highly qualified and effective in performing the duties assigned to them, and which contains a healthy diversity of personal backgrounds. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer. This means we are committed to providing equal access to all categories of employment, regardless of actual or perceived race, color, national origin, creed or religion, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, age, gender identity or expression, disability or any other legally protected category under federal, state or local law. Once hired, employees will need to present proof of eligibility to work legally in the United States.

Job Description
Please note that if you have already applied for an Elementary Teacher position for the 2016-2017 school year, your application is still active. You do not need to re-apply here.

The Syracuse City School District is undergoing a new phase of innovation and transformation with the goal of ensuring that all students graduate high school with the skills needed to be ready for college and career. For Syracuse, all means all – including students who fall behind or have been considered “hard to serve” for a host of reasons. The School Board and Syracuse community have charged Interim Superintendent Jaime Alicea with improving student achievement, and he is seeking a dedicated team of school leaders and teachers to partner with him in moving the district toward its goals. The Syracuse City School District represents 34 schools and 4 alternative education programs, serving 21,000+ students Pre-K-12 of whom 77% qualify for free or reduced price lunch, 18% are served by the Office of Special Education and 78% are students of color.

  • Demonstrate willingness to put the interests of students above all others;
  • Actively contribute to a culture of high expectations in their school and district;
  • Adapt seamlessly to the complexities of the urban school environment; and
  • Follow current trends in education policy and research, including Common Core standards, comprehensive assessment systems and data-driven instruction.
