Windsor Central School District Earns National Recognition as a 21st Century Learning Exemplar, a P21 Signature Program!

P21, the Partnership for 21st Century Learning has designated Windsor Central School District as an exemplar district for 2016-17. Windsor received this honor for exemplary 21st century learning practices in preparing students for success in college, career and life. 

P21's 21st Century Learning Exemplar Program searches for and shares the stories of schools and districts that have successfully transformed student learning through innovative practices such as distributed leadership and community partnership.

We look forward to the opportunity to continue our work and we are excited about the future opportunities that come with this honor." said Dr. Jason A. Andrews, Superintendent of Schools. 

P21 will be conducting a case study of the Windsor Central School District to be released in the spring of 2017. The case study aims to be used as a model for school districts across the country. The honor also comes with the possibility of additional resources for our students and programs.
