January is School Board Recognition Month, and the Windham School District proudly salutes its Board of Trustees for year-round support. As governor-appointees to the Texas Board of Criminal Justice, these nine men and women are busy professionals, also assigned with overseeing one of the largest correctional education programs in the United States.
WSD Trustees are seen at weekend graduation ceremonies in the prisons, visiting classrooms behind bars, speaking with teachers at staff development meetings, and educating state lawmakers about Windham programs. They personally encourage educators and students to reach their goals - and it's working!
The Board's energy, expertise, hard work and enthusiasm promote academic excellence and accountability for Windham schools throughout the state, making it possible to reduce recidivism and change countless lives.
Windham educators at 86 locations statewide join in thanking the Board for its continued support.
