Lexia Licenses for 2022-2023  

Reminder of Email sent on June 15, 2022:

Dear K-5 Teachers,

After reviewing the District Lexia Usage Reports we have decided to purchase Lexia Core5 licenses for the 2022-2023 school year for grades 1-3.  This data was reviewed throughout the school year and it showed comparatively high use within these grade levels.  As you are aware, the cost per license for the upcoming school year is tripling and therefore it is imperative that we make appropriate financial decisions. 

Lexia provides a systematic and structured approach to six critical areas of reading. The program creates personalized learning paths for students of all abilities through an adaptive placement and scaffolded activities that align to our state standards. Research demonstrates that Lexia Core5 benchmark status is a valid indicator of reading ability based on comparisons with assessment tools such as STAR Reading and STAR Early Literacy when usage targets are met.  Additionally, there was an alignment between end-of-year, grade-level benchmark status in Lexia Core5 and performance on the MCAS. Therefore, it is the expectation that classrooms which receive Lexia Core5 licenses incorporate this tool into instructional practices, meeting the per week target usage as outlined by the program.  Any unused licenses will be targeted for students in grades Kindergarten and Grade 4 who are receiving Tier 2 and Tier 3 support.  

Currently, we are working on scheduling an advanced training for teachers for the fall.  Teachers will learn how to best use the Lexia Data Dashboard to inform and target instruction, group students, and learn how to incorporate Lexia Resources to meet students' needs. 

As always, please reach out with any questions or feedback.
