F.A.S.T.- Future Academic Success Training (formerly AVID)

F.A.S.T. is a college readiness system for elementary through post secondary that is designed to increase school wide learning and performance. FAST accelerates student learning, uses research based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional development, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.

The FAST program began during the 2012-2013 school year with 50 students in the 9th grade. Since that time we have expanded to add FAST to each grade level with approximately 75 students per grade.  If you are interested in the FAST program, please contact the FAST coordinator, Jeanne Pitts at jeanne.pitts@dmschools.org.
Stay tuned for updates on this exciting program that is not offered anywhere else in Central Iowa.
