Each District and School Assistance Center Team is led by a Regional Assistance Director, a part-time recently retired superintendent, who works with a small assistance team of a former principal, a data specialist, a mathematics specialist, a literacy specialist, and a CVTE specialist. The DSAC teams collaborate with districts to assess their strengths and needs, facilitate access to resources and professional development, establish partnerships and networks, and deliver individualized assistance for the region's districts.
