An Overview of the Windham School District
| Cataloged on:
Oct. 31, 2006
ANNOTATION: Created in 1969, Windham was the first correctional school district in the U.S. for incarcerated offenders. Programming is provided in 3 primary areas -- academic/literacy, vocational, and life skills. Those individuals with less than a 6th grade Educational Achievement (EA) score are given priority over other offenders when seeking entry into Windham programs. Since little is known about the effect of programming on recidivism and employability, this report also offers a means to evaluate the school district and its programs.
