Visit By the Committee From the Commission on Public Secondary Schools
Seventeen Educators will make an on-site evaluation of Windsor High School on October 20-23. The evaluation visit will be conducted under the direction of the Commission on Public Secondary Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The visiting committee will be chaired by Elaine Bessette, retired principal, who has had extensive experience in the Association’s evaluation process.
Windsor High School Principal Russell Sills said, “The purpose of this evaluation visit is to review and determine from an outside professional viewpoint the extent to which the school is meeting the Standards for Accreditation. As part of the evaluation, the visiting committee will meet with all school constituents, review the school’s self-study, visit a number of classes, and examine examples of student work submitted by the school. During the comprehensive self-study, the faculty collaborated to identify the school’s strengths to determine those areas in which changes would be beneficial.”
The chair of the visiting committee, Elaine Bessette, said, “Our purpose in visiting Windsor High School is not to criticize but to assist the faculty in its pursuit of quality education for its students.”
Mr. Sills pointed out, “The members of the visiting committee are contributing their services to the school. This spirit of professional cooperation is one of the noted features of the New England Association. The goal of an evaluation is to stimulate a continuing drive for improvement in the school.”
