Louisiana Elementary School Overcomes Literacy Crisis with Lexia’s Core5
Four years ago, Bossier Elementary School faced a daunting challenge: Being labeled as “CIR” or Comprehensive Intervention Required, with an “F” school rating. In 2020-2021, Bossier educators introduced Lexia® Core5® Reading to improve student literacy. The user-friendly interface helped build teacher capacity and differentiated instruction for each student. Despite setbacks caused by the pandemic, the school's literacy progress helped earn a "C" rating by 2022. Core5 played a pivotal role: 60% of Bossier Elementary students who started using Core5 for the 2021-2022 school year—and who were initially working below grade level—advanced at least one grade level in the program.
