Windsor Named Top-3 District in Binghamton-Elmira Area
Buffalo Business First has ranked the Windsor Central School District third out of 40 in the Binghamton-Elmira area. Windsor’s ranking of 73rd out of 431 Upstate districts is an improvement of three spots over last year, 32 since 2014, and 58 places over 2011.
“The continuous improvement of our district is encouraging, and a by-product of the hard work of our teachers, staff, and students. With the expansion of technology in our classrooms, enhanced focus on career- and college-readiness, and continued professional development of our educators, I expect the improvement to continue,” said Dr. Jason Andrews, Superintendent of the Windsor Central School District.
Buffalo Business First ranked Windsor as a five-star district in two areas: social studies and achievement index. The achievement index compares a district’s academic rank with socio-economic indicators.
