Building Better Futures Through Literacy
To better help some adolescent students facing academic challenges and insecurities, Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU), a regional educational service agency in Pennsylvania, implemented Lexia® PowerUp Literacy®, an adaptive, personalized literacy solution for non-proficient readers in grades 6-12. In one year, the number of foundational zone students reduced from 48% to 17%.
“Finding a program like PowerUp that allows students to achieve success within their own private comfort zone is very important…In my classroom, that’s just the model for the way we do things: We meet you wherever you are, and allow you to grow. That’s where social-emotional growth happens, and that’s where academic growth happens.”
