The mission of the Library Media Center is to prepare our students to become active and effective users of information, promote a lifelong love of reading and learning and to provide materials that support the academic and trade technology goals of the CTECS.

At Windham Technical High School, we believe that reading is the key to increasing literacy skills, developing vocabulary, and succeeding as a life-long learner. Our goal for summer reading is for students to have an enjoyable experience where they are encouraged to read for pleasure – not solely for academic credit.

Additionally, while CTHSS has coverage for Chromebook repair, and basic repair is covered for 4 years, only one repair per student is covered for hardware damage such as screen/case damage.  After this occurs the student/parents are responsible for repair cost of the device.  Therefore, please consider adding insurance, and purchasing a Neoprene sleeve, for your son/daughter’s CTHSS assigned Chromebook (see Amazon link below)
