We're sharing our conference learning with other members of our district Fast ForWord team which will help strengthen our focus on continuous improvement."

In addition to Wilson, DCSD participants included general education and special education teachers, paraeducator Fast ForWord lab coaches, building administrators, and district specialists in exceptional education, Title I, technology, and learning information services.
