Thank you to the WSD Board of Trustees!
January is School Board Recognition Month and Windham School District thanks the Texas Board of Criminal Justice for serving year-round as its Board of Trustees. These nine governor-appointed volunteers tackle the enormous job of governing one of the largest and most unique school districts in Texas.
"Our Board's contributions reflect a year-round commitment. They generously give of themselves so that decisions affecting our schools are knowledgeably and thoughtfully made to ensure success," said Dr. Clint Carpenter, WSD superintendent. "The Board's support is critical in making sure Windham students are prepared to make a successful reentry into society, become productive citizens in their communities, and join the workforce as valued employees."
As advocates of WSD schools, correctional educators, and offender students, WSD's Board of Trustees faces unique challenges. The Board defines policy, sets budgets, and works to ensure academic excellence and accountability within WSD, which is located on sites within the Texas Board of Criminal Justice.
"Our board members stand up for correctional education and the difference it makes in the lives of incarcerated men and women, along with their families and communities," Carpenter said. "You'll find our Trustees travelling to weekend graduation ceremonies, visiting WSD classes in session, or traveling to staff training sessions. They talk with students about personal success in the classroom, and they meet Texas lawmakers to discuss the value of correctional education in Texas. We appreciate their energy, expertise, and hard work. They make it possible for WSD to continue the work of helping transform lives."
