The PAR Program is a union and district collaboration designed to support, guide and evaluate first-year teachers in the Syracuse City School District. New teachers are assigned a PAR Consultant, who is a master classroom teacher that provides feedback, resources, professional development, and ongoing support throughout their first year. PAR Consultants report intern progress to the PAR Panel up to four times throughout the year, including an announced formal observation.
The Syracuse Teacher Center was established in 1984 under Ed Law 316 and supported by NYSUT to provide professional learning and resources provided are driven by teachers, for teachers.
