The State Department of Education announced Wednesday that Windsor has been approved to receive $306,985 as a part of the state's Alliance District program, which aims to "provide new resources to the districts in greatest need."
The state identified 30 of the state's lowest-performing districts for potential participation in the program.
The funding approval provides a significant boost in Education Cost Sharing (ECS) funds to the town, which saw a 1 percent overall increase in the education budget.
According to the state, Windsor "plans to consolidate, coordinate, and streamline its data-collection and utilization system in order to provide meaningful and actionable data to teachers and school leaders."
The funds will be used, the state said, to hire a district data coordinator and to start a Leadership Development Academy.
The academy will provide board of Windsor education members, teachers and administrators with professional development, mentoring, and school administration and instructional leadership coaching, according to the state.
