Programs & Services

The Windham School District (Windham) provides appropriate educational programming and services to meet the needs of the eligible student population within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ).  Enrollment priority in Windham programs is prioritized based on factors identified on each student’s Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP).

Academic, career and technical education (CTE), and life skills programs are offered at multiple campuses across the state.  The goal of all classes is to equip students with the tools and knowledge necessary to be successful during their time with TDCJ and upon reentry into their communities.
