“In our classrooms, delivering differentiated instruction can be challenging for our teachers as they dedicate themselves to meeting the instructional needs of so many diverse learners. Lexia Reading fits perfectly in the RTI model we have in place and has become an important piece of our core reading instruction. After teaching skills and strategies in whole and small group settings, our teachers appreciate how Lexia delivers the added practice each student needs to drive their individual progress.”

Iowa School Districts Add Lexia Reading Core5 to Address Literacy
By the end of 2017, the State of Iowa is requiring that third-graders must be reading at or above grade-level or they will face the prospect of an intensive summer school program or repeat the third grade. To meet this mandate and boost the performance of its struggling readers while improving the reading proficiency of all students, Council Bluffs Community School District (Iowa) has chosen to implement Lexia Reading® Core5®. In addition, Davenport Community School District has expanded its use of the research-proven reading program from use in grades K-3 to all students in grades K-5, district-wide.
Lexia Reading Core5 is an approved vendor for Iowa Department of Education: Early Literacy Intervention funding. Check Iowa's Department of Education website for more information.
