Student Support Services Newsletter

     Published on   Tagged under:    District News   

In the Syracuse City School District the climate and culture of our schools and classrooms is very important.  We are working diligently to address parent and staff concerns about the perceived escalation of behaviors in the district, and one way we are responding is by sharing information about all of the services that exist to support students and staff.

We have created a Student Support Services Newsletter which explains the wide range of services and programming available to students in our schools.  Each description contains information about the structure of the program, how students are supported, which community agency provides assistance for the program and contact information for any questions, concerns or feedback.

We are also providing district staff with opportunities to strengthen their skills in classroom management, de-escalating disruptive behavior and positively engaging students.  Community partners with expertise regularly offer workshops for teachers, teaching assistants and administrators to learn how to continuously support our students.

We hope that you find this information helpful as we move forward in developing an infrastructure to support student success.  if you have questions about the programs and supports please contact your child's school or call our Pupil Services Department at 435-4131.
