ERS partnered with the Say Yes to Education Foundation to examine current resource use in Syracuse City School District and identify ways the district can reallocate funds to support the its priorities.
The Say Yes to Education Foundation is supporting ERS work in Syracuse. Say Yes is a national, non-profit education foundation committed to dramatically increasing high school and college graduation rates for our nation’s inner-city youth. Say Yes focuses on providing services to at-risk students and their families that address the key obstacles that have historically prevented students from reaching their highest potential. These services include academic, health, financial, and social programming. Part of ERS’ work will help the district identify opportunities to reallocate resources to sustainably support the Say Yes program.
