Annual Performance Report 2013-2014
This 2013-2014 Annual Performance Report for Windham School District is designed to provide an overview of the programs, activities and accomplishments of our campuses within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ). Our teachers and staff have dedicated their careers to providing vocational and educational opportunities to offenders incarcerated in the Texas prison system. This challenge is rewarding for us and beneficial to our State. The impact of criminal activity on the Texas economy is significant not only in the costs of incarceration, but also in the loss of workforce productivity, the costs of social services for offenders and their families, and the suffering of victims of criminal acts. Along with our correctional partners in TDCJ, WSD education staff is committed to mutual goals which aim to lower the number of crimes committed by released offenders.
