Based in the beautiful, historic town of Woodstock, Vermont, The Windsor Central Supervisory Union (WCSU) is comprised of six K-6 elementary schools in the towns of Barnard, Bridgewater, Killington, Pomfret, Reading, and Woodstock. Students from these towns, as well as tuition students from neighboring towns, attend Woodstock Union Middle School and High School located on Amsden Way in Woodstock . Pre-K services are offered at Reading Elementary and Barnard Academy, as well as other schools through community partnerships both on-site and off-site.



Windsor Central Supervisory Union’s mission is based on the four principles of cohesiveness, equity, high academic standards and professional practice. These principles will guide the support and leadership WCSU will provide to the individual school districts that constitute the supervisory union. The leadership provided by WCSU will be focused on the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of students within the WCSU schools from kindergarten through high school so that students will be prepared to achieve productive and fulfilling lives.

Adopted by the WCSU Board November 12, 2012

Summer SOAK!

Windsor Central Supervisory Union offered a four-week full-day summer program starting June 23rd and ending on July 18th. The program offered academic, service learning and enrichment activities at the middle/high school campus. A focus on expanded learning through innovative instruction that accelerates learning and opportunities for enrichment were key goals as seen in the Camping in Vermont and Wizardís of Woodstock sessions. Outdoor and adventure based activities that engaged the mind and body were included in student choices such as mountain biking and building model planes. High school students were enlisted as mentors to elementary school students providing opportunities to develop leadership skills and community service credits. Off campus learning was embedded in the program and took place at Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Park and Woodstock Recreation Center. The instructional methods and experiences of this summer program felt different from school year classes. By providing this four-week program, administrators hoped to achieve the goal of improving studentsí academic achievement while providing a variety of enriching opportunities. .


From the Superintendent



Dear Students, Families, Staff and Friends of WCSU:
Welcome to Windsor Central Supervisory Union. WCSU and member schools are committed to the four principles of equity, cohesiveness, high academic standards and professional practice. We use these principles as a lense or “touchstone” for decision making relating to all matters of our public education mission. We have established a collaborative working environment for our boards, teachers and administrators so that we can learn from each other, capitalize on shared talent, and maximize our resources to ensure the best learning opportunities for our students.
This year the WCSU Administrative Team is focusing on establishing clarity and consistency of instruction through the development of K-12 standards-based units of study that are rigorous, relevant and prepare students for college and careers. These units are based on both The Vermont State Standards and The Common Core State Standards and use existing work in the supervisory union’s schools as a platform. The goal is to have common curriculum across the K-6 schools that prepares students for the middle and high school. In addition, the Administrative Team is continuing work begun last year designed to identify conditions and practices that support reaching these high standards. By using a text-based study group model and collaborative “walk-throughs” of WCSU classrooms, administrators are increasing their own understanding of research-based best practice and the professional development needs in our schools. 
WCSU educators are committed to providing meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for all students that are challenging and inspirational.
