United Independent School District, Laredo, Texas
Sixty-two percent of Students In 1 Texas School District Leveled Up with Core5
In the United Independent School District in Laredo, Texas, second grade is the transition year for Emergent Bilinguals. Educators didn't just want to help bilingual learners transition to English fully, they wanted to reinforce reading skills.
Elementary coordinators and the curriculum instruction department allocated funds to support a districtwide rollout of the Lexia® Core5® Reading adaptive blended learning program. The district assembled a small-group instruction approach and tailored it for the students, campuses, and coordinators.
As a result of the program, 62% of students using Core5 moved up at least one whole grade level of material.
