School & District Literacy Plans

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

Tiers 1 & 2 for Grades K-3

Fundations® is the program appropriate for Tier 1 & 2 instruction in grades K-3. Each COMPASS Plan for Fundations implementation includes the Level-specific workshops to be delivered; staff members to be selected for Facilitator Certification and teacher-leader roles; the coaching that would be provided and the schools in which the coaching would take place; all materials required for training purposes, and for teachers and students to use in class; the schedule of events and activities; and an orientation workshop for administrators.

Tier 2 for Grades 4-12

Just Words® is the program appropriate for Tier 2 instruction in grades 4-12. Each COMPASS Plan for Just Words implementation includes the workshops to be delivered; staff members to be selected for Facilitator Certification and teacher-leader roles; the coaching that would be provided and the schools in which the coaching would take place; all materials required for training purposes, and for teachers and students to use in class; the schedule of events and activities; and an orientation workshop for administrators.
