School and District Literacy Plans


Wilson® partners with school and district personnel to develop comprehensive implementation and sustainability plans.

Work with Us

Wilson’s Implementation Teams are ready to collaborate with you to develop custom plans that capture your school or district’s strategies for achieving its literacy goals. These strategies are formulated as part of COMPASS Plans and are customized to suit your school or district’s specific needs. Plans may include only one tier or incorporate several tiers of instruction at once.

Benefits of a COMPASS Plan

Guided by a COMPASS plan, school districts and organizations partner with Wilson to:

  • Move smoothly from the first interactions of administrators, school leadership, and teachers through sustainability planning
  • Develop plans to sustain program implementation and teacher support with demonstration sites, coaching visits, and Virtual Implementation Support
  • Create Just Words® and Fundations® support teams by credentialing Facilitators and Presenters.
  • Develop Wilson® Dyslexia Practitioners and Wilson® Dyslexia Therapists
  • Use a well-established model for developing a district’s own Wilson Reading System® Credentialed Trainer(s).
  • Empower educators to teach Wilson programs with fidelity by deepening content knowledge and teaching skills
  • Ensure that plans follow the principles and research-based methodologies of implementation science

Timeline and Availability

The COMPASS process begins in January of each year and commitments to schools and districts are made on a first-come, first-served basis until Wilson reaches its capacity to provide this level of service. Given the depth of our professional learning offerings and that support is only delivered by our highly qualified team of Wilson Literacy Specialists and Wilson Credentialed Trainers, we are able to develop comprehensive literacy plans for approximately 250 schools/districts each year. It is strongly advised that the school/district contact Wilson well in advance of the school year to begin the planning process.

Provide the Right Level of Support for Each Student

Our instructional models meet the needs of distinct student populations.

Building Sustainability

To preserve your plan’s literacy gains, we’ve created a series of certifications that train teacher-leaders; foster a culture of collaborative professional learning; and enable school and individual development.

Graduate Credit

Graduate credit is available for educators who complete Wilson Language Training® professional development courses and workshops through a partnership with Fitchburg State University.
