Lexia Implementation Support for Utah

Lexia is proven effective, when implemented with fidelity. We partner with schools and districts to meet your literacy goals through a sustainable, measurable and successful Lexia implementation. Our shared objective is to ensure the program is used with fidelity in order for students to get the kind of gains that you are seeking. 

Implementation is a process and our implementation support services are designed to support leaders and educators throughout the various stages of implementation. Together, we help schools and districts move from Implementation to Expansion to Optimization. 

Implementation success requires coordination among all stakeholders and Lexia's dedicated Utah Implementation Project Manager oversees this coordination. Implementation Managers provide personalized school level support and the Project Manager provides personalized district level support. 

As your implementation partners, we support deep implementation through consistent professional development, coaching and monitoring. Together, we design school and district implementation plans that incorporate all three of these essential elements.

To address potential gaps in implementation, each plan details the type of support to be provided throughout the year. The graphic below depicts one approach to providing these implementation support deliverables:

By no means exhaustive, the list of school and district level deliverables include the following:

  • Drafting a Lexia Implementation Plan
  • Providing guidance for technical set-up
  • Organizing, scheduling and delivering up to 3 on-site professional learning sessions (school and district level)
  • Access to on-demand professional development resources
  • Providing guidance on scheduling of students for Lexia usage in classrooms, computer labs, intervention blocks, before/after school and at home
  • Monitoring progress towards literacy goals via video leadership conferences (school level) and on-site leadership conferences (district level)
  • Providing ongoing collaborative support via email and phone
  • Assisting with summer school implementations, end-of-year maintenance and new year start up
