Welcome to the Windham School District Website

Dr. John Clint Carpenter - SuperintendentThe Windham School District web page presents vital information concerning correctional education in Texas. Working with adult students within the confines of the Texas prison system is a challenge and privilege, and WSD educators at sites throughout the state enter prison gates daily to help incarcerated men and women make essential changes in their lives.

Teaching literacy skills, training offenders in vocational job trades, working to change criminal thinking patterns, and sharing essential life skills are just some of the ways Windham teachers are making a difference in the lives of their students.

Education is an important way to make a positive daily difference in the lives of incarcerated men and women, their families, and their future home communities. It is an honor to partner with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and other entities in this effort.

We hope you will use this site to get to know WSD. Information describing our educational programs, support services, employment availabilities, student accomplishments, and other essential areas is provided. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions concerning the Windham School District.

Sincerely,

Dr. Clint Carpenter

Superintendent
Windham School District
