CARES Act Michigan

We’re helping school districts across Michigan shape education in the COVID-19 era.

Michigan has placed specific emphasis on remote learning as a critical component of reopening school districts across the state and maintaining key literacy benchmarks for students. Lexia can help educators, students, and administrators meet these important goals during this critical time as they decide how to best distribute federal ESSER and GEER funds from the CARES Act.



Michigan is suggesting school districts use relief funds to build out distance learning capabilities. Lexia’s literacy programs allow educators to maintain consistent instruction that aligns with Michigan’s educational standards and help implement a distance learning solution that works for everyone.



With the retention policy of Michigan’s Read by Grade Three law suspended due to COVID-19, school districts will need a renewed focus on students who are unable to read at grade level in the fall. Lexia’s offerings can help improve literacy skills for students in Michigan and allow districts to quickly close the gap in literacy requirements as schools move toward fully reopening.
