Superintendent Takes New Approach to Early Literacy Instruction, State Scores Soar

Wightman realized his students needed an evidence-based literacy program that allowed for differentiation. The district implemented Lexia® Core5® and saw test scores skyrocket, with some district schools' literacy rates reaching the 95th percentile in Michigan.
