Insight Education Group (IEG) announces that Syracuse City School District (SCSD) has renewed their partnership with Insight for the upcoming school year.

During the 2011-2012 school year, SCSD and IEG created custom frameworks for both teachers and school leaders. Together they created a taskforce bringing key stakeholders to the table, including teachers, principals, parents, university representatives and community members, to build the frameworks. Including these various stakeholder’s voices was an important part of the framework development process and continues to influence revisions to the frameworks. SCSD was the first district in New York to win state approval to use a custom built, Common Core- aligned teacher framework and complementary leadership framework. Implementation of the frameworks is part of a larger effort to continue supporting and growing teaching and leadership talent in Syracuse.

In 2012, under the leadership of SCSD’s Superintendent Sharon Contreras, the district launched their five-year Great Expectations strategic plan. The plan put forth a focus on the recruitment, development, and retention of great educators and administrators with the primary goal of providing all students with equitable access to a rigorous curriculum.

Building on their successes over the past two school years, Insight will partner with SCSD to further support talent development, create robust professional development based on teacher performance data, calibrate teacher observers, and conduct quality school reviews.

Superintendent Contreras comments, “It is one of our top priorities to put a great teacher in every classroom. This belief is at the heart of our partnership with IEG.” She continues, “It is with great pleasure that we continue working with Insight to further build upon the success we have already realized. We look forward to the positive impact this partnership will continue to have in our classrooms.”
