A message from Superintendent Dr. Clint Carpenter & Martha Fields, Interim Director of Instructional Division:

THANK YOU, Windham Principals,  for your outstanding work in leading our schools!

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has proclaimed October 2017 as “Principals Month” in Texas. Across the nation, states are taking the time to thank principals for their dedication to creating student success and school safety. Windham School District principals are no exception!

Principals are expected to be educational leaders, disciplinarians, community builders, spokesmen, budget analysts and guardians of policy mandates and initiatives. Principals set the academic tone for their schools and work collaboratively with teachers to set performance objectives and maintain high curriculum standards.  Despite the challenges of working within the physical confines of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, these educators provide the leadership, hard work and vision required to help their adult students rebuild their lives and reach for second chances.

We are sincerely grateful to WSD principals for the daily hard work, expertise and passion they share to help others transform their lives.  They are making a difference every day!  Please tell them “Thank you!” for a job well done!

WSD Principals… and district staff meet at “Blueprint Training” in Navasota to map out plans for focused leadership strategies, improved learning experiences and a successful year for Windham students and programs.
