Our District

Syracuse City School District (SCSD) is setting a higher bar for students and teachers 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.

Teaching in Syracuse

Apply your passion for urban education. Whether they're from Syracuse or relocating from another district, our teachers thrive on the diverse population -- and incredible potential -- of Syracuse students.

Find your fit among our growing portfolio of schools. Teachers can choose among 33 unique schools, ranging from expeditionary learning to dual language immersion campuses to a new elementary Latin school, among others. Or they can join the Innovation Zone (iZone), a cluster of schools piloting a radical reset of learning expectations.

Take your teaching to new heights. Motivated teachers have regular opportunities to grow as educators, with the support of a new evaluation system and up to 50 hours of personalized professional development.

Build a rewarding career doing what you love. We believe great teachers deserve recognition and ways to advance professionally. Salaries start at $42,000 and teachers can earn extra for working in an iZone school ($6,000) or earning a highly effective evaluation rating ($6,000).

Who We Want

Successful SCSD educators are all in for Syracuse students. They:

  • Believe strongly that all students can learn at high levels;

  • Demonstrate commitment to serving urban students, schools or communities, and to closing the achievement gap;

  • 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;

  • Follow current trends in education policy and research, including Common Core standards, comprehensive assessment systems and data-driven instruction.


  • Proven experience accelerating measurable student learning in urban schools (preferred)

  • Minimum of two years' successful classroom teaching experience (preferred)

  • All candidates must possess New York State teacher certification in their subject area, or qualify to obtain it by the first date of employment. This requires at least a Bachelor's degree. Licensed teachers from other states may qualify for reciprocity.
