The State Board of Education is expected to vote Wednesday to extend for another year the state’s intervention in the operation of Windham and New London public schools.

The state board voted in 2011 to intervene in Windham schools by appointing a “special master” backed with the authority to make management and governance decisions. The following year, the state board voted to also intervene in New London.

Steven Adamowski, the former superintendent of Hartford tapped to be New London’s and Windham’s special master, is expected to be given another year to implement reforms aimed at turning these low-performing districts around.
