CARES Act Texas
We’re helping Texas shape education in the COVID-19 era.
Remote learning is an integral part of reopening school districts across Texas and helping them continue to meet state-mandated policy goals. Lexia remains committed to helping Lonestar State educators, students, and administrators as they decide how to best distribute federal ESSER and GEER funds from the CARES Act during this critical time.CONTACT LEXIA
REDUCING LEARNING LOSS
Due to COVID-19, diagnostic tools to measure skill gaps and progress will be more important than ever, as the Texas Education Agency has emphasized that monitoring is critical for instructional continuity. Lexia’s literacy programs use adaptive assessments and individualized learning models to enable students to build their skills and allow for teachers to see student progress in real time.
MEETING STATE POLICY GOALS
School districts are still expected to meet HB3 requirements to educate students using a phonics curriculum via systematic direct instruction to ensure that K–3 students gain early literacy skills. Lexia’s products were developed based on the Science of Reading and offer robust phonics instruction that can help districts meet the goals of HB3 while maintaining a safe remote learning environment for students.
HELPING DISTRICTS DECIDE WHAT’S BEST
Under Texas’s reopening plan, school districts must determine an at-home instruction model and select materials that best fit student and teacher needs. Lexia’s individualized curriculum can help implement at-home asynchronous instruction with self-paced online courses that provide ongoing progress monitoring, supply student-specific resources for teacher-led instruction when needed, and can be used as part of a blended-learning synchronous instruction model. With Lexia, districts don’t have to waste time searching for and implementing a system that may not meet their needs.
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.
Texas State Progress Report
Approximately 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 667 schools across Texas. Students of all abilities made substantial progress in Core5 across the year.
