CARES Act Pennsylvania
WE’RE HELPING PENNSYLVANIA SHAPE EDUCATION AND NAVIGATE REOPENING IN THE COVID-19 ERA.
Remote learning is integral to Pennsylvania’s plan for reopening school districts in a phased manner. During this critical time, Lexia stands ready to help educators and administrators continue to close the reading gap—whether remotely or in person—as they decide how to best distribute federal ESSER and GEER funds from the CARES Act.CONTACT LEXIA
NAVIGATING A COMPLEX REOPENING
Due to Pennsylvania’s phased reopening plan, the state’s school districts face the challenges of starting the year virtually then transitioning to in-person instruction. The flexibility of Lexia’s programs allows districts and educators to focus on making this transition as easy as possible.
HELPING CLOSE READINESS GAPS
Pennsylvania’s School Reopening Task Force Report recommends districts find tools to identify and assess potential student readiness gaps. Lexia's research-proven literacy programs do just that.
KEEPING TEACHERS CONNECTED
Now more than ever, teachers need data-driven tools to monitor student learning. Lexia’s proprietary Assessment Without Testing® provides periodic and actionable norm-referenced data in real time without the need to administer a test, supplementing traditional instruction by helping educators identify individual student needs.
CLEARLY SHOWING PROGRESS
Pennsylvania’s School Reopening Task Force Report asks districts to determine strategies for ensuring assessment criteria are shared and understood, providing constant feedback to students, facilitating continuous monitoring of student learning, and enabling students to engage in self-assessment. Lexia’s programs for students in grades pre-K–12 meet these goals by allowing students to monitor their success while equipping educators with the insight and resources to make Lexia’s real-time data actionable.
Horizon Heights Elementary School
I am a strong believer of using Lexia Reading Core5® to help students of all abilities build fundamental literacy skills. Struggling readers, especially English language learners, students with special needs and students at-risk, have benefitted tremendously from using the program.
Pennsylvania State Progress Report
Over 32,000 students in grades K–5 used the Lexia® Core5® Reading (Core5) blended learning program as recommended during the 2018/19 school year in 313 schools across Pennsylvania. Students of all abilities made substantial progress in Core5 across the year.
