What is the purpose of the WINSS website?
Wisconsin's Information Network for Successful Schools (WINSS) is a resource for educators, parents and community members interested in educating the hearts and minds of Wisconsin's children. WINSS provides information on what we want our children to know and be able to do; how students are performing each year; and how our schools are staffed and funded. WINSS also describes the seven characteristics of successful schools - and shares resources that are central to successful schools including leadership, planning tools, professional development and community partnerships.
