Thank you for your interest in Citizens Academy. 

FOCUS is planning on classes in the traditional in-person format but at half capacity to allow for distancing in the classes. Preparations are being made for a virtual format if that proves necessary. The schedule for classes now is 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the Wednesday evenings in September and October and will include a boxed meal.

Please fill out the REQUIRED contact information and ALL of the open-ended application questions. After the application period ends on Saturday, August 1, 2020, we will review all applications and notify applicants regarding acceptance status in mid-August. 

For technical assistance with the online application, please contact FOCUS Communications Director Dee Klees at 315-448-8731 or via email at 
 focus@syrgov.net. FOCUS regular business hours are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Assistance requests made outside regular hours will be replied to the next business day. 

Special thanks to National Grid for its support of Citizens Academy.
