About Windsor Public Schools

  • For Teachers

    Windsor Public Schools is a great place to teach and learn! As an educator new to the district, we offer prior to each new school year a three-day induction program focused on instructional and community partnerships that include a tour of the town, a luncheon with a community partner and an off-site team building experience. 

    For educators new to the profession, time for mentoring and support is job-embedded, and occurs during the work day. For all educators, the district offers a teacher leadership academy (Windsor Leadership Corps), where teachers grow as leaders through the process of designing and implementing their own year-long “change” projects. 

    For both certified and non-certified staff, there are annual school and district recognition programs. 

    Windsor Public Schools has official partnerships for pre-service educators with the following universities: University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, annd the University of St. Joseph.
