Welcome to the SCSD Public Dashboard


This dashboard is designed to provide the public with information related to student and staff achievement in the Syracuse City School District. The reports that are generated are guided by Great Expectations 2012-2017, the district's Strategic Plan designed to transform our schools and help fulfill our mission to become the most improved urban school district in America. With this dashboard, the public can track our progress in achieving this goal.
