New York State's Teacher and Computer Training Centers were established by the New York Legislature in 1984 under NYS Education Law 316. At present there are approximately 126 centers serving school districts throughout the state. They collaborate with public and private teachers, schools, districts, institutions of higher learning, and other education stakeholders.

We provide a variety of services and programs to enhance the professional learning 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 will continue to make a concerted effort to involve Syracuse City School District, private and parochial schools in its 2020-2021 activity and staff are encouraged to make use of all of the professional learning opportunities.  In addition, we have maintained a productive relationship with higher education, making use of the valuable human resources of their staff that enriches the program offerings of the Teacher Center. 

The Center is governed by a Policy Board of 19 members.  While a majority of the board members are teachers, administrators and parents, higher education and the private 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:
