"Lexia is a wonderful program with so many supports for teachers. The up to the minute data that is provided to me is so helpful in making decisions about student placement and levels. The lessons it provides for instruction are well planned and have saved me much time. Students are so engaged and actively learning throughout your entire lesson. It gives me something for my students to work through while I am working with individual students."

School Districts in Wisconsin and Illinois Leverage Lexia Reading Core5 to Drive Literacy Gains as Part of Personalized Learning and 1:1 Initiatives
Having worked with Lexia Learning for nearly two decades and an Apple Distinguished 1:1 District award recipient, Berwyn South School District 100 in Illinois deployed Lexia Reading Core5 across all elementary schools at the beginning of the 2014–15 school year. “When we had the opportunity to implement Lexia with our district-wide Apple iPad® and MacBook® laptop program, we had no hesitation whatsoever,” said Colleen Cummings, director of special education at Berwyn South School District 100. “Our struggling readers needed a structured reading program like Lexia that applies proven research, science and methodologies to accelerate fundamental literacy skills acquisition. By providing our students with this relevant program for literacy, coupled with our 1:1 devices, we believe we now have all the right pieces in place so that learning never stops. And the data is echoing that fact.”
