WPS Receives Benjamin B. Tregoe Award

Benjamin B. Tregoe Award for Strategic Leadership in Education image Winchester Public Schools (VA) has been selected as one of the 2019 recipients of the Benjamin B. Tregoe Award for Strategic Leadership in Education for their organizational excellence in collaborative decision making.

TregoED collaborative problem-solving and decision-making processes were used to improve decision making in all areas across the district. The use of process allowed them to take a transparent and rational approach to a complex and delicate budgeting decision. The resulting clear rationale and widespread stakeholder support solidified the district’s commitment to embed the processes into their daily work.

The award recognizes school districts, individuals or teams that have achieved significant and enduring results using TregoED tools for collaborative problem solving and decision making. Recognized school districts have been able to demonstrate successful resolution of a critical issue or problem and operational or systemic changes that have had lasting value.


As It has always been our goal to “teach a man to fish…” we are proud to see how this district has embraced and purposefully embedded the skills they needed to achieve their goals of an efficient and more successful district-wide decision-making process to support their shared vision.
Michael Curran-Hays - Executive Director, TregoED
