Syracuse Central Tech, student progress, high school education
This report was completed at the request of John Dittmann, principal of the new Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central (Tech Central), which the Syracuse City School District (SCSD) will open in fall 2007. The purpose of this report is to collect baseline data enabling Tech Central to track student progress over the coming years based on changes in teaching methods that will be implemented at the new high school. In addition to the methodologies designed (listed below) research on best practices from case studies of successful high schools was assembled that are based upon the High Schools That Work (HSTW) program.
