Marietta City Schools, Marietta, GA
Investing In Emergent Bilingual Literacy Leads to National Assessment Success
Marietta City Schools is home to one of Georgia's largest Emergent Bilingual populations. Given the unique needs of these students, educators knew they needed a literacy program that would support the students in English and their various native languages. They implemented Lexia® literacy programs and found that it gave their students confidence as their test scores improved. The district invited families monthly to celebrate students' achievements, fostering a sense of belonging in this diverse community.
