Syracuse Teacher Center

Your Subtitle text


New York’s Teacher and Computer Training Centers were established by the New York Legislature in 1984 under Education Law 316. At present there are approximately 130 centers serving school districts throughout the state. They collaborate with public and private teachers, schools, districts, institutions of higher learning, and other education stakeholders. The Syracuse Teacher Center serves the Syracuse City School District and the private and parochial schools that have signed a Declaration of Participation.

We provide a variety of services and programs to enhance the professional development of teachers. The knowledge and skills acquired by our teachers supports their classroom instruction and has a positive impact on students’ academic and social performances.  

The Syracuse Teacher Center is governed by a Policy Board. While a majority of the board members are teachers, administrators and parents, higher education and parochial schools are also represented on the Board. The Syracuse City School District serves as the Local Education Agency (LEA), as a sponsor of the Teacher Center.

Syracuse Teacher Center Mission Statement:
