Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. How does someone get enrolled in a career and technical education (CTE) class or the High School Equivalency program?
Selection for enrollment into Windham School District (Windham) programs is based on an Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP) developed for each resident. Students are placed into educational programs based on the needs and priorities outlined on their ITP. If enrollment is recommended by the ITP, priority is based on the resident’s age, program availability and projected reentry date. Campus student advisors review each resident’s ITP to determine program eligibility. If a resident is interested in educational programs offered by Windham, they can contact their campus student advisor. All residents are encouraged to ask questions when they attend the Unit Classification Committee, where programs are discussed.
Windham offers an English as a Second Language (ESL) course. Enrollment is based on the resident’s ITP.
If the resident’s ITP identifies a need or priority for educational services that are not offered at their campus, Windham may transfer the resident to a campus in which that specific program is offered.
4. I called and spoke to the principal. They would not give me any information about a resident. Why not?
Because our students are adults, we need their permission to speak to anyone regarding their educational information. We must have written consent from a student before we can discuss their records or status for enrollment.
All book donations must be submitted to the Library Services department. There is a form that can be emailed to the individual or organization wanting to donate books to Windham. A list of donated books must be submitted along with the form for superintendent approval. Once approved by the superintendent, the book(s) will be accepted by Library Services. The residents are welcome to donate books to the campus libraries. They do not have to fill out a donation form. When donations are accepted at the campus level, all books have to be sent to Library Services to be cataloged.
