The Windham Southeast Supervisory Union (WSESU) has the administrative responsibility for the school districts in our southeast region; i.e., Windham Southeast School District (including the towns of Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, and Putney) and the Vernon Town School District in Vernon. All three entities employ staff. Employees of WSESU are the Special Educators and Central Office staff. Employees of WSESD work in the various schools, with the exception of Vernon Elementary School, whose workers are employed by the Vernon Town School District.
General oversight of the Supervisory Union falls to the Superintendent who is appointed by the supervisory union board. Each of our two districts has an elected board that establishes policy and presents the annual spending plan to the voters for approval. The Windham Southeast Supervisory Union Board has membership from both district boards, including five directors appointed as voting members.
The WSESU mission is to provide a safe, inclusive and supportive environment where all students grow academically, socially, and emotionally, and are challenged to reach their potential as local and global community members.
Windham County is a vibrant community and a great place to live. WSESU works with a number of community organizations that help our students grow and learn. It takes a community to raise a child, therefore we rely on the help of our community partners to assist students and families in many ways.
The teachers, administrators, staff, and board members of WSESU are committed to ensuring that diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice remain at the heart of our work. We consistently examine employment practices, discipline measures, curriculum, participation in school community leadership roles, athletics and extracurriculars, and professional development in the light of supporting and encouraging historically underrepresented and marginalized populations.
The Windham Southeast School District (WSESD) includes the elementary and middle schools, as well as our high school and career center in the towns of Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, and Putney. Those schools are Academy School in Brattleboro, Oak Grove School in Brattleboro, Green Street School in Brattleboro, Brattleboro Area Middle School, Brattleboro Union High School and the Windham Regional Career Center, Dummerston School, Guilford Central School, and Putney Central School. Early Education Services in Brattleboro is also part of the WSESD.
