Job Description

Clary Middle School


The Syracuse City School District is Building our Future by ensuring that all students have the opportunity to achieve at a high level. Teaching and learning are our core business and we know that education is essential to improve future life opportunities for our students. We also recognize that strong leaders and teachers together have a profound impact on student achievement. With this in mind, we are seeking educators who are ready to partner with us and our community in ensuring a bright future for all students. The Syracuse City School District represents 34 schools and 4 alternative education programs and serves over 21,000 students in grades Pre K-12. 78% of SCSD students qualify for free or reduced lunch price, and approximately 20% are served by the Office of Special Education. 77% of the students in the school district are students of color.


One key strategy the Syracuse City School District is utilizing to close achievement gaps and build the foundational skills and knowledge students need to prepare for college and careers is to hire Secondary Intervention Specialists to provide additional data-driven, differentiated, explicit and systematic instruction to students performing significantly below grade level expectations, especially in the areas of Mathematics and Reading.
