School and District Literacy Plans


Wilson® supports school and district personnel in developing comprehensive implementation and sustainability plans.

Let us support you from program implementation to success

Wilson’s Implementation Teams are ready to collaborate with you to develop custom plans that capture professional learning events geared toward achieving your literacy goals. Each unique COMprehensive Plan for Achieving Success and Sustainability (COMPASS plan) is customized to suit your school or district. The implementation path to building sustainability may include one or multiple Wilson programs and Tiers.

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 workshops, courses, demonstration sites, coaching visits, and Virtual Implementation Support (VIS)
  • Create Just Words® and Fundations® support teams by credentialing Facilitators and Presenters.
  • Develop Wilson® Dyslexia Practitioners (W.D.P.) and Wilson® Dyslexia Therapists (W.D.T.)
  • Use a well-established model for developing a district’s own Wilson Reading System® (WRS) Credentialed Trainer(s) (W.C.T.)
  • Support Principals through a virtual community of practice to explore key conditions that support successful implementation
  • 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. 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 (W.C.T.), we are able to develop comprehensive literacy plans for approximately 350 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.

Compass with the word Compass spelled out on the side

Provide the Right Level of Support for Each Student

Our instructional models meet the needs of distinct student populations.

Build 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.
