Fort Worth Independent School District, TX
Why Not Both? Fort Worth Doubles Up with Core5 and PowerUp
"Lexia's data is robust and easy to navigate. Teachers can use it to help kids, and principals use it to help teachers help their students.”
—Marcey Sorensen, Ed.D., Chief Academic Officer, Fort Worth Independent School District
Packed with accessible data-rich tools, Lexia’s products are invaluable assets for the Fort Worth Independent School District in Texas. With Core5, the district succeeded in reducing the number of elementary students reading below grade level by more than half.
That’s no small feat for a school district faced with tough challenges.
At Carroll Peak Elementary School alone, the overwhelming majority of students are from economically disadvantaged households. Lexia’s role as a powerful educational partner quickly climbed in esteem among Fort Worth’s teachers and students. This prompted the district to incorporate PowerUp and bring the same success to middle and high school students.
Unlock the Reading Potential in Every Child
Educators know students vary in their reading proficiencies and often require individualized and differentiated instruction to be successful. Lexia Core5 Reading is an adaptive blended learning program that accelerates the development of literacy skills for all students, helping them build expertise in both word recognition and comprehension to support reading success. Organized around six critical areas of reading—phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, automaticity/fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension—Core5 is research-proven to accelerate literacy learning for students of all abilities.
Literacy Solutions Tailored to Adolescents
Adolescents excel when provided with learning experiences that are age- appropriate and address their individual learning goals. Lexia PowerUp Literacy supports students in grades 6–12 who are at risk of not meeting College- and Career-Ready Standards. Proven to be up to five times as effective as the average middle-school reading intervention, PowerUp enables students to make multiple years of growth in a single academic year. PowerUp’s engaging grade-level texts motivate students while saving educators time by providing data to identify gaps in skill levels and create action plans to deliver the correct instruction.
