One Size Doesn’t Fit All: A Flexible Approach to Literacy in Arkansas
While Bryant, Arkansas, educators already were familiar with the science of reading thanks to the state’s Reading Initiative for Student Excellence (R.I.S.E), the pandemic hit the district with a new set of hurdles.
Students who were up to speed before had fallen behind—and those already struggling before the pandemic lagged even further. Bryant teachers needed a middle and high school literacy education solution that was both measurable and flexible.
Luckily, Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® provided resources that led to a 16% increase in sixth-grade ACT Aspire Reading test scores in just one year.
