Lexia’s PowerUp Literacy Delivers Major 6th–12th Grade Literacy Gains
Learning to read can be tough—even more so if English isn’t your first language. More than one-fifth of the students in Kentwood Public Schools are Emergent Bilinguals (also known as multilingual learners (ML) or English Learners (ELs), representing more than 80 different countries. Kentwood educators noticed students began to lag as they progressed through the EL program. Literacy shortcomings extended across the rest of the student body, too. Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® provided the perfect solution with targeted interventions that proved easy to incorporate into any student’s schedule. This adaptability and flexibility have made PowerUp a renowned literacy product in schools across the country—and it’s easy to see why.
