Remote Learning with Lexia Programs During Extended School Closures

Lexia® Core5® Reading and Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® can be used from home as part of a remote learning implementation during extended school closures or other special circumstances. This document provides information about key program features to help inform educator contingency planning and support the successful continuity of student learning. 

Key Program Features for Successful Remote Student Learning

  • Students can log in to Core5 and PowerUp from home.
    • We recommend creating a plan for how students will log in at home and sharing that plan with parents or guardians.
    • If students are logging in to Core5 or PowerUp directly, teachers can share Home Letters with families that are already crafted in multiple languages:
    • However, your school may use a Single Sign On solution, allowing for easier access to all instructional technology programs for students. If your students are logging via your school’s LMS or landing page, make sure they know where to go to log in. Please provide them with what they need to log in, such as their username and password, or Clever badge. If your school or district uses Clever for Single Sign On, you can visit for additional resources to support home access.
  • Students can also continue learning using printed program resources, such as Lexia Skill Builders. This option can be especially helpful in instances where supported devices are not available at home.
  • Core5 and PowerUp offline instructional resources can be printed ahead of time and sent home for extended practice and review.
